Flares: Well, that was easy...

Today I disposed of some flares at HMC SRC at Lee-on-the-Solent and it was an entirely painless process.

I rang last week to find out which days the necessary officers were there and to list what I wished to dispose of; I rang this morning to double check and then drove down and dropped off the flares. Parking (on the hovercraft slipway) is free and just across the road.

A bit of peace of mind for minimal effort. I thought it might be a bit bureaucratic but not so...

(As a bonus I got to gawp at the SR.N4 the other side of the fence!)

I might have to pay them a visit then. How much do they charge for disposal?

Absolutely nothing.

(He did say the oldest flare handed in was from 1961!!)

Good post

One in the eye for those who harp on about the difficulties of ethically disposing of TEP's
