Prevent illegal dumping: tips for hiring a junk hauler

If someone you hire hauls away materials and then dumps them illegally, you may be responsible for cleanup and disposal costs. If you suspect someone is improperly disposing of materials, report them to the Kitsap Public Health District.

  • Wait to pay until you see a receipt from a legitimate garbage or recycling facility.

  • Ridiculously low prices indicate that your waste may be illegally dumped.

  • Ask the business you hire where they intend to recycle or dispose of materials.

Prevent illegal dumping: tips for property owners

  • Install gates or berms to prevent illegal entry onto your property.

  • Install "No Dumping" signs at access points to your property. Contact the Kitsap Public Health District  to ask about getting these signs for your property.

Marine Debris Removal

Report marine debris found along the shoreline to the Department of Natural Resources. Kitsap is surrounded by waterways that we love to enjoy. Report debris along our shores to prevent future breakdown of waste into our waters and harm to our wildlife.

Abandoned Boats, Vehicles, RVs, Trailers

If a vehicle is blocking traffic or poses a threat to safety, report it to 911.

Report boat, RV, or trailer abandoned in the public right-of-way 

Send the location and details to our removal team by contacting Kitsap1.

Vehicles abandoned in the public right-of-way

Report abandoned vehicles in the right-of-way that are not a traffic hazard or blocking access to the law enforcement agency responsible for that area. If the vehicle is a traffic hazard or blocking access, call 9-1-1. If you're unsure who is responsible, contact Kitsap County and we'll route your report.

Vehicle, boat, RV, or trailer abandoned on private property

Contact Kitsap1 to request assistance with junk vehicles on private property.

If the vehicle does not have a title (or has a different Registered Owner), we can provide a Junk Vehicle Affidavit for you to complete. We can also send a notice to the Registered Owner (if one exists). The property resident/owner is responsible for the disposal costs, tank pumping, and towing. We can connect you to these services.

Cover and Secure Your Vehicle's Load

​If you haul waste or debris in an open truck or trailer, you must cover your load every time. Not only is it illegal to drive with an uncovered or unsecured load, it contributes to water pollution and roadside litter.

County waste facilities issue at $10 fee for each unsecured load you bring to a facility.
