  • Limit six bags or six cans. We are limiting the amount of waste you can bring. You can bring up to six trash bags (large contractor cleanup size is OK) or six trash cans. No loose waste.

  • Secure waste. All waste must be properly secured to your vehicle. Tie-down cans, can lids, or securely cover your entire load with a tarp. 

  • Don't converse. Facility staff will not engage in conversations or answer questions unrelated to waste. Please do not interact with traffic control (flaggers) or law enforcement.

  • Stay safe. Stay at least 6 feet away from other people at all times. Do not visit if you or someone in your home is sick. Be prepared to unload quickly and safely. Wear closed toe shoes and gloves.

The following items will not be accepted at Olympic View Transfer Station because they are not an immediate public health threat (e.g. old furniture) or require too much staff interaction (e.g. needles): 

  • No large items (furniture, mattresses, wood, etc.) that won't fit in a bag or can.

  • No spring cleanup items from your home, yard, or garage.

Business access to Olympic View Transfer Station

Olympic View Transfer Station remains open to account holders daily, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

If your business does not have a current account, you can request limited weekday access to Olympic View Transfer Station. This request form is for businesses providing essential services or with waste that is a public health threat (putrescible waste, food, rat-infested, etc.). Requests submitted through this form will be processed within one business day.


Curbside waste services

Curbside waste services continue normally. Curbside trash and recycling service is available to all households in Kitsap County. Residents are required to have curbside service within the City of Bremerton, City of Port Orchard, and City of Poulsbo.

To start or learn about services, contact the service provider in your area.


Additional information for residents without curbside waste services

Waste must stay in the county where it was generated. Out-of-county facilities are not open to Kitsap County residents, including Purdy Transfer Station and the Belfair or Shelton waste facilities. They are checking IDs.

We understand your concerns about waste accumulating and have the following recommendations:

  • Sign up for curbside waste services.

  • Contact an independent trash removal company that may be able to service your waste needs on a temporary basis. The following companies have responded to our inquiry and are still operating at this time:

Trash Transporter LLC - (360) 649-2435

TRS Trash Removal Service – (360) 373-2007

1-800-GOT-JUNK – (855) 221-6809

College Hunks Hauling Junk – (360) 208-0338

  • Keep all waste securely contained inside trash cans or other sturdy plastic totes. You may want to empty storage totes inside your home to use for this purpose. Keep waste protected from wind and rain.

  • Ask a neighbor with curbside service if they'll let you add your trash. Waste Management customers can put out extra bags or cans of trash for a fee. Poulsbo residents can only put out extra trash if they purchase a prepaid tag. Bainbridge Island residents must label extra trash according to these instructions.

  • If you’re able to start a backyard compost pile, this is a great time to do so. Diapers cannot be composted and need to be kept contained. Our website Composting in Kitsap County provides information and links on how to start a home compost pile. YouTube is another excellent resource for how-to composting video.

  • To prevent odors, wash dirty containers and do not throw away food waste. Store unavoidable food waste in your freezer for the time being, if possible.
