Roads and Maritime Services' Expired Marine Flares Collection Program

Published on 11 November 2019

Roads and Maritime Services' expired marine flare collection program is on again from November 2019 to January 2020. Find a collection point near you to safely dispose of your expired flares.

Most flares have a use-by date of three years and they must be replaced before this time. Flares contain explosive matter which makes safe and legal disposal difficult. This collection program provides the boating community with an opportunity to safely dispose of their out of date fares.

The closest collection point to the City of Ryde is the Ermington Boat Ramp, Ermington, with collections taking place on the following dates:

  • Saturday 7 December 2019, 10.30am-12.30pm
  • Saturday 18 January 2020, 2.00pm-5.00pm.

For more information on the schedule and other collection locations across NSW visit the RMS website or call 13 12 36.
