Noxious Weeds

(Last Updated: 8/11/2021)

"Noxious weed" is a legal term for certain plants that are non-native, agressive and invasive, but also have the potential to be eradicated or controlled within Washington state. Remove them whenever you can to prevent them from damaging habitats and agricultural businesses.

Not all weeds are considered "noxious." This list shows the top 12 noxious weeds of concern in Kitsap County. View photos of these weeds on the WA State Noxious Weed webpage.

Disposal

​Noxious weeds should go into the garbage, not into your backyard compost or your curbside composting bin. Use this chart to know how to throw away noxious weeds you’ve removed.

If you have large amounts of noxious weeds, contact help@Kitsap1.com to speak with the Noxious Weed Program Coordinator for Kitsap County.
