If you are hosting a fireworks display, follow these steps to dispose of your used fireworks safely.

• Get a bucket of water ready before you start your display
• Soak your used fireworks for at least 15 minutes, overnight if possible
• Wrap your soaked fireworks in a plastic bag
• Put it in your general waste bin or take it to your local recycling centre

For any unused fireworks, Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service run a fireworks amnesty where they will collect and dispose of your unused fireworks safely. Visit Firework Safety.
