Dangerous Waste Disposal for Small Quantity Generators

COVID-19 Update

The Small Quantity Generator Program is now accepting online inventory worksheets and scheduling disposal appointments for eligible businesses and organizations.


​Kitsap County Small Quantity Generator (SQG) Program

Most businesses and organizations generate some form of dangerous waste - waste that's potentially harmful to our health and environment.

Businesses and organizations that generate small quantities of dangerous waste can use the Kitsap County SQG Program to safely and affordably dispose of it.


Steps for using the Kitsap County SQG program

Step 1: Request a disposal appointment online

Submit the online inventory worksheet to request a disposal appointment. If you need help organizing and identifying your waste, use the worksheet to request free on-site technical assistance.

If you cannot submit the online inventory worksheet, contact Kitsap1 at help@kitsap1.com or 360-337-5777 to schedule an appointment.


Step 2: Program staff will contact you to schedule appointment

Within five business days, program staff will contact you to schedule your appointment or schedule free on-site technical assistance. Collections are held twice a month.


​Step 3: Deliver your waste to the collection facility at your scheduled date and time

Collections are held at the Kitsap County Household Hazardous Waste Collection Facility at 5551 SW Imperial Way, Bremerton. The facility is located in the Olympic View Industrial Park across from the Bremerton National Airport on Highway 3.

Only bring waste you listed on the online inventory worksheet. Other wastes will not be accepted.

Do not mix waste types together. Transport waste in closed, labeled, and leak-proof containers. Transport waste in a trunk or truck bed to minimize risk to people. Comply with U.S. Department of Transportation regulations for hauling hazardous materials.


Step 4: Pay disposal fees

Small quantity generators pay disposal fees, which vary by waste type and quantity.  At your appointment, staff will provide an itemized record of waste received and the amount due. You can pay at the appointment with a local check or request a mailed invoice.
