Kitsap County held a successful metal and tire collection event on April 30th and May 1st! Residents turned in 5,500 waste tires and 14.5 tons of scrap metal with 129 BBQ grills.  

If you missed this event, there are other tire and metal drop-off sites across Kitsap! Visit Recycle.KitsapGov.com to find an alternative site.

 Events postponed or cancelled due to COVID-19

 City and tribal events

Some cities and tribes host clean-up events or services for people who live within their city or tribal boundaries. Contact your city or tribe directly to ask about these events. Proof of residence is required.

Events include the City of Bremerton Beautify Bremerton yard waste event, City of Port Orchard Spring and Fall Clean Ups, and City of Poulsbo Residential Cleanup Dumpster service.


 Paper shred events

Shredded paper cannot go in your recycling bin, but you can recycle it at a paper shred event or kiosk!

Businesses in Kitsap and Mason county occasionally sponsor free paper shredding events. Check the LeMay Community Shred Event schedule to see if an event is scheduled near you. If there isn't an upcoming free event, learn about year-round paper shredding options.
