WHAT TO DO WITH OUT OF DATE FLARES
With the summer season approaching fast, are you and your boat ready? One local boat owner recently purchased a second hand vessel only to find three red parachute flares on board that had expired in December 1992! Out of date flares can be extremely volatile and may not work at the point when you may need them the most. If you have any out of date flares, you can take them to the new Household Recycling Centre at their facilities at La Collette or Jackson's Yacht Services. Alternatively, South Pier Marine Ltd will take them if you are purchasing new flares in store. Every year between 2500 -3500 out of date pyrotechnics are disposed of locally by Stuart Elliott who is the island's explosives expert. If you have any questions regarding out of date pyrotechnics, please call Stuart direct on 07797 757977. Please do not dispose of them by any other means.
