Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service are today launching a 'firework amnesty.' As people prepare for bonfire night GMFRS are providing a collection service for people wishing to dispose of any they may have in a safe way.
The amnesty is part of the multi agency 'Treacle' campaign designed to prevent, tackle and protect against anti-social behaviour, criminal damage and reducing incidents and injuries during the Hallowe'en and Bonfire period.
Assistant Chief Constable Garry Shewan of Greater Manchester Police said: "Halloween and Bonfire Night are nearly upon us - occasions where traditionally whole families get together to enjoy the fun and festivities.
"Unfortunately, not everyone respects the traditions of these evenings and often we see people's fun being spoiled by the actions of a few who commit acts of antisocial behaviour.
The number to call to arrange GMFRS to pick up fireworks is 0800 555 815. You can follow Treacle news on Twitter #Treacle2013.
