How do I dispose of fireworks.

By krats - 16 May 2010 22

While cleaning out my shed,Thursday .I come across some fireworks.I have them for years,but had forgotten about them.These day’s they are illegal,Not knowing what to do with them (letting them off was an option) I decided to phone Tuggeranong police for advice.

The officer said “put them in a plastic bag and bring them down”, to which I said “are you sure?”

He replied I will check…”NO” was the response. “They are dangerous and illegal  phone work cover they will collect them.”

My next call was work cover. After telling them the story. The bloke told me I had to talk to Dangerous Good’s. After waiting what seemed an hour(probably only 10 minutes) he came back and said there was no one available. He could take my details and have someone contact me.

Well as I type it’s Saturday. Does any one know what to do with the firework’s??? (GREEN or RECYCLE bin?)

What’s Your opinion?

I wouldn’t elaborate if I were you Pork Hunt – or you’ll find yourself in all seriousness on a police watch list. One of the best indicators of future criminal behaviour is fantasising about or carrying out animal cruelty.

While I personally believe that fireworks border on animal cruelty (having a couple of dogs who are terrified of them) I don’t think that Pork Hunt was suggesting that the fireworks be used in a manner contrary to what they were designed for, rather just letting them off in the vicinity of a few thousand dogs. Did I read it wrong?

It would have been most amusing, with the PM’s entourage at the walk – I wonder how long it would have been between the ‘bangs’ and the arrest?

WHAT!!?? This has got to be a joke. You wasted your time trying to decide how to dispose of fireworks? Even the police think you are an idiot. You could have totally destroyed a mailbox by now. Wake up to yourself.

If you have a bulk lot, the army bomb disposals will possibly take them off your hands.

In all seriousness, if workcover don’t contact you, put them in a plastic bad with no holes, tip in about half a litre of water, tie up the bag, put it in the garbage for collection.

Although it’s not the nicest stuff in the world, some sloppy cardboard and wetted old powder will be pretty harmless.

Just build a small fire somewhere, throw them on and walk away.

oh my god. set them off. are you kidding me? you paid good money for them. what kind of law abiding citizen are you? you suck. i can’t believe you’d go to the trouble of getting rid of them when its about 5000 times easier to just set them off. how about give them to me and i’ll do it for you, pussy.
