Clean-up was underway across the metro Saturday following Fourth of July festivitives. A family near the Happy Hallow Neighborhood worked hard to rid their yard of fireworks.
They told WOWT 6 News the fun part for them was the friendly competition with their neighbors -- of who had the best display. Those displays kept them busy Saturday. “This is like, our 3rd cleanup, we did two last night because we are way bad, haha. But it was totally worth it.”
To help people get rid of the leftovers, the Omaha Police Department is holding an amnesty day.
They will be accepting fireworks, guns and ammunition, no questions asked. The event is going on at two different locations, Omaha Fire Station 43 (just off North 108th and Fort Streets), and Seymour Smith Park at 72nd and Harrison. It will take place Saturday,July 12. You can drop items off between 9 a.m. and 3.
