The Arlington Police Department will host a “Safer Homes, Safer Community” gun buyback on Saturday, Oct. 2, at the lower tennis court parking lots of the Winchester Country Club.
The event will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and provide residents with an opportunity to safely and securely dispose of unwanted firearms.
Removing unwanted and unsecured firearms from homes reduces the chance of accidental discharge, self-harm and theft. Residents or businesses interested in finding out more information or making a donation may contact APD Special Projects Clerk Cheryl Nahigian at 781-316-3946.
Bring firearms unloaded with the safety engaged in a bag, box or case. Leave the unloaded firearms inside the trunk of your vehicle upon arrival.
The Middlesex Sheriff's Office and Massachusetts State Police will safely destroy all guns. No ID required; no questions asked.
