Where can I set off fireworks?

It is always best practice to discharge fireworks from your own property and assure that no part of the firework including burning embers leaves your property.  Individuals and property owners may be held liable in civil courts for any damage caused to persons or property caused by firework discharge.  

It is always illegal to:

    • Discharge fireworks in any Washington State Park or Kitsap County Park
    • Discharge fireworks on state or federal land, including those managed by the Department of Natural Resources and the U.S. Forest Service.
    • Discharge fireworks on public property, including public streets, sidewalks, parking lots, or school property.
    • Discharge fireworks on private property without the owner's permission, and to discharge fireworks from private property onto public property.

How do I dispose of used fireworks?

  • Soak them in a bucket of water for at least 15 minutes
  • Wrap them in plastic
  • Put them in your garbage

The water will contain heavy metals, so it is recommended that you dump the leftover water on gravel or grass – not down a sink or storm drain where it can pollute groundwater, streams, or Puget Sound.
