Default Getting rid of expired meteor/aerial flares.

How do you get rid of expired meteor/aerial flares?

Is there any place on the lake that will take them for disposal?

.... a great excuse to have a Saturday night flare party complete with a local craft beer, big music 'In a gadda da vida', and wild women! ...

Maybe ask your transfer station if they will take them if you cut it up with a table saw, totally slice it and dice it, and then soak the cut up remnants in water for 24-hours, and then beat on it with a big hammer ... or have it gift wrapped and give to brother-in-law for Christmas gift. ...

I give them to my kids for their cars. Nothing gets attention like a meteor flare

I worked for a hazardous waste company and one of the things we wouldnít/couldnít accept was flares. I never found anyone I could refer people too.

Please donít listen to FFL, not that I expect you or any sane person would. Flares are considered an explosive hazardous waste and contain perchlorate so soaking them in water isnít a viable solution. No transfer station will or should take them. I would suggest calling your local police or fire department for advice.
