Plainfield's City Council was told on Monday by Public Safety Director Martin Hellwig that 21 weapons had been turned in during the first of two Saturday buyback programs,
Last Saturday's three locations were Shiloh Baptist, Grace Episcopal and Rose of Sharon churches.
According to Hellwig, the buyback program is funded by a $20,000 grant from the Union County Prosecutor's Office.
Hellwig said he expects more weapons to be turned in today as a result of positive 'word on the street' about the way the program works.
