Lawn & Yard Equipment

(Last Updated: 3/15/2019)

If your lawn equipment is beyond repair, there are two easy steps to getting rid your broken lawn equipment:

First, remove and recycle hazardous parts. Fuel, motor oil, and rechargeable batteries are hazardous and must be recycled. Click on the items to find a free recycling site.


Second, is your lawn equipment mostly metal or mostly plastic?

  • Mostly Metal: Recycle as scrap metal after you remove and recycle hazardous parts. Find a scrap metal recycling site. If you cannot lift your metal equipment, do not bring it to a county facility. Bring it to a private scrap metal recycler.

  • Mostly Plastic - Recycle Option. Take your item to a private scrap metal yard. At Olympic View Transfer Station and Central Kitsap Recycling and Garbage Facility, we request that you remove as much plastic as possible before putting your item into our scrap metal containrs. Find a scrap metal recycling site.

  • Mostly Plastic - Disposal Option. Plastic lawn equipment can be safely disposed as garbage at a Kitsap County disposal facility after you remove and recycle hazardous parts. County disposal facilities do not accept riding lawnmowers for disposal.


Give away, sell, or donate good condition items. Learn more about donating good condition items.
