(Port Orchard, WA) The Old Furniture Roundup is on Sunday, June 23rd from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. This ONE-DAY ONLY event is held at the Olympic View Transfer Station in the Olympic View Industrial Park across from the Bremerton National Airport on Highway 3.

Residential customers may bring the following unusable furniture to the Olympic View Transfer Station for FREE disposal during this event:

Loads containing garbage will be charged the regular rate.

Household hazardous waste will not be accepted at this event. All loads are pre-screened on site.

Secure your load with a tarp, cargo net, chains, straps and/or bungee cords. Tie larger items directly to your vehicle or trailer. If any light weight or loose material can fly out of a moving vehicle, cover the load with a tarp. Driving with an unsecured load in your vehicle is a violation of Washington State law. Fines range from a $216 traffic violation to a $5,000 fine and jail time if something falling out of your vehicle causes bodily harm.

Residents should be sure the items they bring for disposal are not in good enough condition for reuse by local charities. The Solid Waste Division homepage at www.kitsapgov.com/sw has a complete list of locations to donate good, usable items. Furniture that is too good to toss can also be listed on the www.2good2toss.com website. Residents can list items at no cost. All items listed must sell for $99 or less. Many items are free!
