There are 13 amnesty bins located across Greater Manchester where you can anonymously drop off your knife.

At the beginning of the 2020, GMP launched the Forever Knife Amnesty following the overwhelming success of September 2019's amnesty, and in further efforts to reduce knife crime across Greater Manchester. 

Over a thousand knives have been deposited in the bins since the launch, which is a fantastic result for Greater Manchester as any knife deposited is one less on our streets, and more importantly, one less that can't be used as part of a crime.
We'd like to take this opportunity to thank the public of Greater Manchester for supporting the Forever Amnesty; thanks to your support, the campaign continues to be a success, as number of knives deposited doesn't appear to be slowing down.

Below is a map showing the location of your nearest bin. These are here throughout the year and knives can be deposited at a convenient time for you.
