How do I go green?

Flares cannot be reused.

There are annual collection events held across Canada every year by Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons. Check the link to see if there is an upcoming event in your area.

    Proper disposal of flares is important as they cannot be thrown in the regular trash due to their safety hazards. The only real safe way to get rid of them is through someone licensed for explosives disposal.
