Disposal fees at Olympic View Transfer Station increase January 1, 2017

Port Orchard, WA) - Beginning January 1, 2017, new garbage disposal fees will be charged at Kitsap County's Olympic View Transfer Station (OVTS). These new fees reflect the actual costs of providing these services, based on a study completed by the County's Solid Waste Division.

The minimum fee at OVTS will increase from $19 to $22 (tax included) for up to 598 pounds of general garbage, also known as municipal solid waste or MSW. For amounts greater than the minimum, the fee will be $71 per ton, plus 3.6% Solid Waste Collection Tax. This disposal fee continues to be the lowest in the Puget Sound Region, and second lowest in all of Western Washington. Other charges at OVTS include:

  • Appliances ($16.50 each)

  • Passenger vehicle tires ($5 each)

  • Commercial truck tires ($8 each)

  • Separated yard waste ($67.70/ton)

Other fees apply to various other "special wastes" such as asbestos, contaminated soils, and creosote-treated lumber. For a complete list of special waste fees, click here.
