Where can I dispose of ammunition or a firearm if I live in the Town of Atherton?
Upon your request, the Atherton Police Department will dispose of any ammunition you may have at your house. Just call the police department at 650-688-6500, or you can bring your ammunition down to the station.
We will also dispose of any old firearms you do not want. If you bring a firearm to the police department for disposal, make sure it is unloaded and keep it in the trunk of your vehicle until an officer meets with you in the lobby. You can also call the police department at 650-688-6500 and an officer will meet you at your home.
