Flare Disposal Days

Rosario Passos

Counting Stars
Whitby 42 Ketch
April 14th, 2018

CPS-ECP is partnering with Transport Canada and CIL Dealers again this year to assist boaters to safely and effectively dispose of flares.

Have Your Flares Expired?

If your flares have a manufacture date of 2014 or earlier they may have already expire, or they will expire this year. It is not legal to light them, throw them in the water or in your household garbage to dispose of them.

Disposing of expired flares has been an ongoing challenge for boaters across the country. To help boaters dispose of expired flares in a safe and environmentally responsible manner, CPS-ECP and selected CIL Dealers are hosting Safety Equipment Education and Flare Disposal Days. On these select days, you will have the opportunity to bring your outdated flares to be properly disposed of, free of charge.
