There is the second knife amnesty bin already in place in Pitsea opposite Chalvedon Social Club in Mill Green.
The knife amnesty bins are supported by Safer Basildon, Essex Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner and the Only Cowards Carry charity, which was founded by Caroline Shearer in memory of her son Jay Whiston who was stabbed to death at a party in Colchester in September 2012.
Scott Logan, Chairman of Safer Basildon, said: "These bins are intended to give a message that no-one should carry a knife and Basildon does not condone knife crime. I would urge anyone to dispose of a knife, whatever the reason they have it, in this safe and secure way".
Temporary Chief Inspector Steve Parry, District Commander for Basildon, said: "I hope that the Only Cowards Carry knife bin will encourage people throughout Basildon to surrender their knives.
"The work of Caroline and Only Cowards Carry, although created out of a tragic situation, has probably saved countless other lives over the past seven years.
"It's crucial for us to take these steps for a safer Basildon. I'm optimistic that people across the town will reconsider the dangerous situations they're putting themselves in and realise that carrying weapons only leads to trouble and can often end in terrible circumstances."
Anyone who wants to surrender a knife should make sure it is fully wrapped up and placed in a secure container before bringing it to the amnesty bins.
