Household Hazardous Waste Collection Facility (HHW)

Free drop-off disposal for hazardous products from Kitsap & Mason County homes

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 Kitsap1 at 1.360.337.5777 or to make your appointment. Call ahead if you're unsure.

 How to use the HHW facility

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 turned away and required to make a follow-up appointment. Making an appointment helps you get in and get out faster. Contact Kitsap1 at 1.360.337.5777 or 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.

 Safe transport tips

Watch a short video on how to package and transport hazardous products (external page).
  • Use original containers. Keep the product in its original container. If you have used a different container, label it.
  • Keep away from passenger cabin. Keep the product out of the passenger compartment of your vehicle and away from children and pets.
  • Secure load. Place containers in a plastic bin or box with a lid, and keep them from tipping or leaking. If transporting waste in a truck, secure the load with ties to prevent the load from shifting.
  • Never mix. Do not mix different types of products in the same containers.
  • Don't tape bulbs. Do not tape fluorescent tubes or bulbs together, and when possible, transport them in the original box to prevent breakage.
