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 started June 18, 2019.
The 2019 event has passed. We will hold the next Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event in North Kitsap in summer 2020. Please visit our year-round Household Hazardous Waste Facility for hazardous waste disposal.
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.
