Disposal of Flares

The Coastguard at the Harwhich Marine Office accept flares at their Office in Walton-on-the-Naze but only from the general public.  If it is a commercial organisation i.e. a Yacht Club then they will have to make their own arrangements.

The Office times for accepting the flares are:

Monday~Thursday 09:30-15:30 hours

Friday                      09:30-15:00 hours


The flares have to be processed on the day of receipt so the Coastguard request that people telephone to arrange a date for the flares to be dropped off so they can ensure someone is present to process them.  The flares cannot be accepted unless a prior appointment is made and someone is there to process them.
