Firearms & Ammunition
Do not dispose of firearms or ammunition in a private or public trash bin. When that ammunition gets dumped in to the back of the garbage truck, and the compactor runs, it could cause the ammunition to fire. Do not bury and do not soak in water or oil to dispose of.
Call your local police station using the local telephone number.
Ammunition may be disposed of during a Household Hazardous Waste Collection event. For notification of events, Signup for the Keep Nassau Beautiful newsletter, www.keepnassaubeautiful.org.
