I usually keep a few. Put them into a zip lock bag, they will still work. Make sure that you write on them and the bag EXPIRED. Keep a few the rest bring to the local fire house.

I do what Barry does with his expired flares. However, I usually use three of the expired flares to do some practical application with my wife and kids so they will know how to use them. When the are lit we throw them in the fire pit. This way my family knows just about how long they burn and how to use them.
