Visit a pop-up table outside shops around Kitsap to get your own reusable and washable shopping bag. We are adding locations often, so please check the Bring Your Own Bag! Pop-Ups Facebook Event for the most up-to-date information.
June 12: Bremerton Foodline, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
June 13: Food Market at Kingston, 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
June 14: Fred Meyer Port Orchard, 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.
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.We also want to help people prepare for current and proposed reusable bag ordinances (plastic bag bans). City of Bremerton recently became the 29th city in Washington to ban plastic bags (effective Jan. 1, 2020). Kitsap County and City of Port Orchard are considering similar ordinances. Bainbridge Island passed an ordinance in 2012 and neighboring Gig Harbor’s bag ordinance will start June 18, 2019.
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.
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.
