What can you do with your expired flares?

Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons, in cooperation with CIL Orion, are providing two opportunities for boaters to drop off their expired flares at no charge.

May 2, 2015 – Vancouver Area

Flares can be dropped off at the following Steveston Marine and Hardware locations:

  • 1667 W 5th Avenue, Vancouver
  • 3560 Moncton Street, Richmond
  • 201 – 19700 Langley Bypass, Langley

May 23, 2015 – Vancouver Island (Nanaimo)

Flares can be dropped off at West Marine, 120 – 2000 Island Highway North, Nanaimo

Please check your current flares, make sure you have the correct ones for your boat size, and bring any which have expired. They expire four years from the date of manufacture, which is stamped on each flare.
