Expired flares collected at Lions Park
Expired boating flares will be collected at Lions Park boat ramp in Woy Woy from 7:30am to 10am on Saturday, April 17.
"The expired flares collection program provides the boating community with an opportunity to safely dispose of their out of date flares at no cost," said Marine Rescue Central Coast unit commander Mr Duncan Coles.
"Most flares have a use-by date of three years and must be replaced before the expiry date.
"Flares contain explosive matter which makes safe and legal disposal difficult."
