​Do not put fireworks into your trash without following proper disposal instructions.

Used Fireworks: Soak used fireworks in a bucket of water for at least 15 minutes until they are cooled down. Wrap the used fireworks in a plastic bag and put the bag in your garbage. Pour the remaining water into a grassy area to prevent the toxic metals contained in fireworks from entering a storm drain.


Unused Fireworks: Contact the Washington State Patrol District 8 at 360-473-0300 to arrange for proper disposal.

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.
