Fireworks

(Last Updated: 6/24/2019)

Used fireworks can hold heat for a long time and cause a fire. To safely dispose of used fireworks:

  • Soak them in a bucket of water for at least 15 minutes

  • Wrap them in plastic

  • Put them in your garbage

The water will contain heavy metals, so it is recommended that you dump the leftover water on gravel or grass – not down a sink or storm drain where it can pollute groundwater, streams, or Puget Sound.

 

Unused Fireworks: Contact the Washington State Patrol District 8 at 360-473-0300 to arrange for proper disposal. Depending on the item, they may direct you to the Kitsap County Sheriffs Office.

Washington State Patrol occasionally hosts free explosives collection events in Kitsap County. Check the WSP's Press Release webpage to check for an upcoming event.
