    Default Bristol Channel Collection of TEPs

    I've just read on the main YBW site that the MCA has contracted with a private company to collect time expired pyrotechnics from coastguard stations in 2010, in order to relieve the pressure on the Ministry of Defence. I thought this would be good news, but the number of collection points has been reduced to 18, and the only location serving the Bristol Channel will be Milford Haven.

    I would have thought Swansea or Portishead would have been more logical...

    Thoughts??
    All the best

    Better still Cardfiff bay which is the biggest single collection of boats in the channel.

    Agree with Jon - Swansea would be ideal.

    I don't get the issue with out of date flares. I took mine down to plod in Bristol. They filled in three forms in triplicate (typing with one finger on a typewriter: it only took them 30 minutes) and they were gone. What's the point of bothering the coastguard?
