Recycling Exemption

Senior Citizen, Disabled Persons, & Limited Income Recycling Exemption

Residential recycling collection is automatically included with garbage collection in Kitsap County. The service is provided by Waste Management.

Senior citizens and disabled persons with limited income who live in the unincorporated county may apply for exemption from recycling collection. Those with an exemption will not pay for or receive recycling collection services but may continue to recycle at drop-off facilities.

To inquire about recycling exemption, contact Kitsap 1 at 360.337.5777 or email help@kitsap1.com.


Eligibility

Property owners must receive a property tax exemption or deferral from the Kitsap County Assessor to qualify for recycling exemption. Once you have received a tax exemption or deferral, you may request recycling exemption.

Renters complete a separate application form and must meet certain age, disability, income, and other requirements.


City residents should contact their city to ask about recycling accommodations or exceptions.
