Safely dispose of your expired flares
Flares typically have a lifespan of three years from date of manufacture, but it can be hard to find a location to get rid of them.
To improve boater safety and compliance with equipment requirements, WorkSafe and Maritime Safety Victoria will run collection points throughout the year.
You don't need to register to attend these events, just pop by to drop off your old flares and pick up some boating safety tips.
The events will be subject to relevant COVID-19 rules.
