Roads and Maritime Services Expired Marine Flares Collection Program

Published on 30 November 2018

Roads and Maritime has launched a program to help boaters dispose of expired flares, with mobile collections set up along the NSW coastline. The expired marine flare collection program kicks off in the new year. 

Most flares have a use-by-date of three years, and penalties apply if they are not replaced before the expiry date. It is the responsibility of marine flare owners to dispose of the expired flares in a safe and timely manner.
