For many years the RCMP has accepted expired or unusable marine flares from the public for disposal. Unfortunately, as a result of a decision at the Provincial level of the RCMP, the Detachment is no longer able to continue accepting expired or unusable marine flares for disposal. Pacific Blasting and Demolition in Burnaby have offered their services, at a cost, to the public for the disposal of expired or unusable marine flares. Pacific Blasting and Demolition can be contacted at (604) 291-1255 or at The Detachment continues to collect Military Marine Markers which are long aluminum tubes often found washed up on the shoreline. Should anyone have any questions or concerns, please call the Detachment.
