FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – Fireworks are illegal in the City of Fort Worth – but city officials will ask no questions when the Fire Department hosts a Fireworks & Ammunition Collection Event later this month.
The event will take place on Saturday, January 19 from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. at the Environmental Collection Center at 6400 Bridge St.
“This is an opportunity for citizens of Fort Worth to bring their unwanted ammo and fireworks that they may have in their possession,” said Tim Hardeman with the Fort Worth Fire Department.
The ammo and explosives will be burned in a unit supplied by The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. Hardeman says that, whatever you bring, they’ll take it — no questions asked.
“Some citizens may have unwanted ammunition around the house or they may have leftover black powder or smokeless powders that they no longer want, and they can also bring that by and we will collect that also,” he said.
Fort Worth residents must bring proof of residency in the form of driver’s license or current water bill to participate.
The city also urges residents to review the proper disposal techniques. Fireworks and ammunition are not to be placed in the garbage or recycling bins and can be collected appointment or at specified locations.
