Household Hazardous Waste Collection Facility

COVID-19 Update

The Household Hazardous Waste Facility is open normal hours of operation with COVID-19 health and safety guidelines in place. The reuse shed is closed until further notice.

All customers are asked to maintain social distancing of at least six feet and to keep discussion and questions to a minimum. Starting June 26, customers must wear a mask while they are within six feet of another person not in their household.

Staff will wave you forward from the stop sign to under the awning. Please roll down your window and await instructions. Based on your delivery, you will be asked to either remain in your vehicle and allow staff to unload your waste or get out of your vehicle and unload your own waste onto carts provided by the staff.

You will be asked your zip code and any other relevant questions about your waste (contents of unlabeled waste, origins of waste, etc).

For questions or concerns, submit this inquiry form or call Kitsap1 at 360-337-5777 from Monday-Friday, 8 am - 4:30 pm.

How to Use the HHW Facility

This is a drive-up facility. When it's your turn, you will be asked to drive under a covered area. Customers are responsible for unloading their own vehicles. Facility personnel may assist, but cannot enter vehicles. This facility can accommodate persons with mobility limitations.

Staff will sort your waste with your assistance. They may ask you questions or provide education. Before you leave, you will sign an agreement verifying that your waste is from a home and not from a business or organization.


Safe Transport Tips

Keep yourself, your family, and our staff safe by following these guidelines for packing and transporting hazardous products:

  • Put containers in a sturdy, lined box and prevent containers and boxes from tipping or leaking.

  • Put boxes in your trunk or truck bed, not the passenger area.

  • Use straps and tarps to secure boxes in truck beds.

  • Use original product containers. If you used a different container, label it.

  • Never mix different types of products.

  • Don't tape fluorescent tubes or bulbs and don't let them get wet.
