Poulsbo Recycle Center to Permanently Close on September 30, 20179/1/2017

 (Poulsbo, WA) – The Kitsap County Poulsbo Recycle Center, located at 21868 NW Viking Way, Poulsbo, WA 98370, will permanently close as of 3:30 pm Saturday, September 30.

The Kitsap County Board of Commissioners approved the sale of the Viking Way property after a thorough evaluation of services and available options for residents. Now that the sale is underway, the facility closure date is set for the last day of September.

"The countywide availability of curbside recycling, along with subsidizing the costs of operating the facility with disposal fees from other sites, makes this facility no longer the best use of ratepayers’ money," said Pat Campbell, manager of Kitsap County’s Solid Waste Division. "The sale also provides revenue for the development of a much-needed full-service household hazardous waste facility to serve North Kitsap residents."

Although the County will stop collecting recyclables and limited household hazardous products at the Viking Way site, there are still ways to recycle and dispose of these items in the north end of the county.

The County is encouraging everyone to use curbside recycling service. Curbside garbage and recycling services are available countywide and are required for residences within the city limits of Poulsbo.

There are also local disposal options for materials not collected curbside, such as motor oil, antifreeze, and fluorescent lights. Residents can also search the County’s online recycling and disposal guide, What Do I Do With It?, for countywide options.

More information on the County’s decision to sell the property and close the facility is available in this fact sheet.
