About Garbage, Recycling And Yard Waste Pickup
In all areas of Kitsap County, curbside garbage collection includes
curbside recycling. Your recycling service provider will issue a wheeled cart or
recycling bins, instructions, and a calendar of collection days. Combined
garbage and recycling bills will be sent to you quarterly.

Yard debris collection is an optional service available to residents
living in the burn ban areas and areas with sufficient density. Leaves, weeds, prunings, grass clippings,
brush, and woody material up to 4 inches in diameter and 3 feet in length can be
recycled. Yard debris service includes the use of a 90-gallon wheeled cart
that holds three times as much as a standard 32-gallon trash can. Food
scraps may also be thrown into your yard waste bin, provided they are free
of plastic, metal, etc.

qualify for the recycling exemption program. Qualifying citizens neither
receive nor are billed for curbside recycling service. To qualify for this
program, you must be the property owner and have a tax reduction or
