Yakima Training Center Hosts Ammunition Amnesty Day

Posted: Updated:
 YAKIMA, WA.- The Yakima Training Center hosted an Ammunition Amnesty Day Saturday afternoon, allowing members of the community to come and dispose of old ammunition in a safe way.

Officials from the Yakima Training Center were at the training center gate off of Pomona Road at nine this morning.

They host the event each year as a way for people to become more informed about ammunition and safely dispose of any ammunition they might have lying around.

They had around 20 people come out and take advantage of the drop off location, organizers say it's always a positive opportunity to inform the community no matter the turn out.

“I had a lot of folks that showed up with ammunition that had belonged to their grandfather and had just been sitting around for long periods of time they and they didn't need it anymore,” Stacey Gossett with the Yakima Training Center explained.  

The event wrapped up around one on Saturday.
