Fireworks

Find out how to dispose of fireworks.

Disposal

Never put fireworks, even those which are fully spent, on the bonfire.

Never dispose of them by burying.

Soak fully spent fireworks in a container of water after use (till soaked right though, this could take several hours), then put in your household rubbish bin.

Soak misfired or partly spent fireworks in a container of water in an area where they cannot be tampered with (preferably away from the display site) and contact the manufacturer or supplier for advice on disposal.
