We want to let you know that two new knife bins have now been installed in Lancaster and Morecambe, allowing unwanted knives and sharp items to be disposed of safely.
Your local bins are located at Greenayre Skate Park on Parliament Street and near the youth centre on Central Drive in Morecambe.
Knives and sharp objects are present in everyone’s home and are easily picked up by children and young people. Providing a safe facility for dealing with unwanted knives is just one of many ways we can come together with communities to keep knives off our streets and protect young people.
Anyone who has a knife or bladed weapon can dispose of it in the knife bins where it will be taken away and destroyed. We want to keep knives off the streets and keep our young people safe – and providing a way for people to dispose of bladed items helps us to do that.
If you have any information about knife crime in Lancashire, please contact the police on lancahire.police.uk/
