There are 3 ways to recycle large appliances:
At county facilities: We accept large appliance for a $20 recycling fee at North, Central, and South Kitsap Recycling and Garbage Facilities and at Olympic View Transfer Station.
Customers must transport and unload the item themselves. Remove food and garbage from appliances before bringing to a facility. No commercial appliances are accepted, even if used in a home.
At private scrap metal recyclers: Contact the private recycling businesses below to ask about your specific appliance.
Some metal recyclers accept appliances without refrigeration units for free, but appliances with refrigeration units have a recycling fee. This fee helps the business offset the cost of disposing of the hazardous chemicals inside.
Home haul-away services:
Puget Sound Energy Program: Eligible Puget Sound Energy customers can receive $25 when they have a qualifying fridge or freezer picked up for free recycling.
Retailer Recycling Programs: Many appliance retailers will pick up and recycle your old appliance when they deliver a new one. Ask the retailer for assurance the old unit will be properly recycled. Allbest Appliances and Recycling, Best Buy, Sears, Home Depot, and Lowe's offer appliance haul-away programs. Fees may apply.
