Firearm collection events will be held in Balclutha, Lawrence and Clinton this weekend, providing firearm owners an opportunity to hand in their prohibited firearm/s and parts for buyback.
It’s also a chance for anyone to hand-in any firearm or part – no questions asked – under amnesty. If you hand-in firearm/s and parts under amnesty no personal details will be recorded as the amnesty is entirely anonymous.
If you do want to hand-in firearm/s or parts for buyback, please complete the online form at www.police.govt.nz before coming to an event – including listing each firearm and/or each individual part you are bringing along.
The details of the events are:
Friday 30 August: Balclutha War Memorial Hall (car park around the back), 4 Clyde street, Balclutha, from 10am-2pm.
Saturday 31 August: Lawrence Golf Club, 27 Waipori Road, Lawrence, from 10am-2pm.
