If a container has the words caution, warning, flammable, combustible, danger, toxic, or poison and still has product inside, it does not belong in the trash. Take it to the household hazardous waste facility instead. See a list of items accepted at the facility (pdf).
Make an appointment if you have large amounts from a home (larger than 5 gallon containers, loads over 50 gallons total, or more than 50 containers). If you have large amounts and arrive without an appointment, you may be turned away. Contact

Hours for residents: Thursday-Saturday, 10AM - 4PM. Closed Thanksgiving Day.
Hours for businesses:
Businesses have separate hazardous material disposal requirements and must have an appointment.
The HHW Facility is a drive-up facility. When it's your turn to be helped, you will be directed to drive under a covered area. Staff will sort your waste, with your assistance. They may ask you questions or provide education. Before you leave, you will sign an agreement verifying that your waste is from a home and not from a business.
Make an appointment if you have a large load. Call a few days in advance for large loads (larger than 5 gallon containers, loads over 50 gallons total, or more than 50 containers.) If you don't make an appointment, you may be asked to wait while customers with smaller loads are assisted first. Making an appointment helps you get in and get out faster. Contact Kitsap1 at 1.360.337.5777 or firstname.lastname@example.org to make your appointment.
Transport safely. It is important that you safely transport your waste. See our safe transport tips (pdf) before loading your vehicle.
Don't bring empty containers. Empty containers go in your trash. Leave the lid off so your garbage hauler can see they are empty.
Products labeled warning, flammable, combustible, danger, toxic, or poison need special handling and disposal. These may include:
Proper disposal prevents hazards from entering the environment; damaging soil, groundwater and streams; and causing harm to people and animals.
These products are not accepted at the Household Hazardous Waste Facility.
