2024 Collection Events

There are no upcoming events scheduled yet.


No Tire Collection Event in 2024

Due to WA Dept. of Ecology budget constraints, Kitsap County is unable to offer a tire collection event. We will offer this event if Ecology funding becomes available at a later time. Low cost tire disposal is available at local tire shops. Leave your old tires behind when you buy new tires.


Past Collection Events

In 2023, Kitsap County hosted two collection events and successfully removed over 90 tons of waste. 

Household Chemicals Event

Kitsap County Solid Waste Division, in collaboration with the City of Poulsbo, managed a household hazardous waste collection event in 2023. The County’s vendors collected approximately 22,500 pounds of flammable, corrosive, reactive and/or toxic materials from 233 residents of Poulsbo and surrounding communities.


These events have been held annually or biennially in North Kitsap or Bainbridge Island since 2001.  They supplement the permanent Household Hazardous Waste Facility in Bremerton, which is available to all Kitsap County residents year-round.  The one-day events will be replaced by a permanent facility located just outside Poulsbo.  That facility is scheduled for completion in 2025.


Tire and Scrap Metal Event

Solid Waste Division's Clean Kitsap Program held a Tire and Scrap Metal Collection event for households in 2023. Households were invited to bring up to 15 passenger tires and a variety of non-hazardous scrap metal items for free disposal. We collected 71.79 tons of tires and 11.35 tons of scrap metal from 532 customers. This is an increase from 2022, where 60 tons of tires and 5.15 tons of metal was collected from 406 residents.

Secure Your Load For Safer Roads

Strap Your Load, Every Time


Use straps and tarps to cover your load. Litter isn’t just ugly, it’s dangerous. Unsecured vehicle loads cause more than 300 traffic crashes and up to 40% of roadside litter, annually, in Washington. Let’s change that.
