Where in Tally can you dispose of expired flares?

The Leon County landfill office on Apalachee Parkway. They will take them as hazardous waste and dispose.

Is it bad to keep them for backups? A fellow probably couldn't own too many flares could he?

I'm not sure what the statutes say, but if you do keep them probably best to label as expired/back-up on a bag and store in a separate place from the active ones.

Thanks for the landfill suggestion. I have been keeping an expired pack on the boat with an active pack. These are twice expired.

IF.......you ever are unlucky enough to need to use those flares, I bet you would not discriminate against firing off the older ones.

You can't have too much ammo. In my humble opinion.

I keep some in the truck for road emergencies. Or you could burn one in the yard to see how they work.

I had some old ones and decided to shoot them off with the rest of my fireworks on the forth this year. Felt like it was less of a waste, and we got a show.

They were way past expiration and everyone still worked! Kept a few since they were still good. As others have mentioned, in an emergency having a few extras cirtainly doesn't hurt.

Just don't use the flares as some sort of gimmick for a gender reveal party in California.
