Bring Your Own Bag! Pop-Ups

Get a FREE reusable shopping bag at one of the locations below. Limit one per visitor as supplies last.

Reusable shopping bags are better for the environment than single-use bags. For that reason alone, we want to help people switch from single-use paper or plastic bags to reusable bags.

Kitsap Board of County Commissioners adopted a reusable bag ordinance on August 12, 2019. Bremerton City Council adopted a similar reusable bag ordinance on June 5, 2019. Bainbridge Island passed an ordinance in 2012 and neighboring Gig Harbor’s bag ordinance started June 18, 2019.

City and Tribal Events

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


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 Community Paper Shred 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.
