Bring Unwanted Guns to Union County’s Buy-back event, Oct 23

Union County is holding a gun buy-back event on Saturday, Oct. 23. The county offers up to $250 for each gun turned in, in any condition — working or not. Anonymity is guaranteed and absolutely no questions are asked.

The county's next buyback event will be held in three locations on Saturday, Oct. 23. Residents can bring their unwanted guns at any time between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. to any of these locations:

  • Elizabeth: Master’s Table Christian Fellowship, 207-211 Bond St.
  • Plainfield: Shiloh Baptist Church, 515-521 West Fourth St.
  • Westfield: Holy Trinity Roman Catholic Church, 506 Westfield Ave.

No appointment is necessary. Convey the weapon in a secure container and bring it straight to the buy-back location of your choice, without stopping off along the way.

There is still time to look through closets, drawers and garage shelves for guns. Participation in the buy-back event has the potential to save lives and help ensure that children in the community feel safe and secure, in school and out.

Union County’s gun amnesty buy-back events are a collaborative effort with the Union County Department of Public Safety, Union County Prosecutor William Daniel, Union County Sheriff Peter Corvelli, Jr. and local law enforcement. For more details visit ucnj.org.

For all Union County programs and services visit ucnj.org, call the Public Info Line, 877-424-1234, email info@ucnj.org or use the online Contact Form.
