A gun buyback will be held for residents of East Palo Alto, Menlo Park and Palo Alto this month, police recently announced.
The anonymous buyback, sponsored by police agencies in the three cities and the nonprofit Protect Our Children, Inc., will take place Feb. 23.
Residents can surrender working firearms, no questions asked, in the parking lot of East Palo Alto City Hall at 2415 University Ave. between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
Residents can receive up to $300 cash depending on the type of weapon. Cash is limited and subject to availability, officials said.
No names or license plates will be recorded and the guns will be marked for destruction.
