Used or unused, flammable charcoal requires proper disposal.


Used charcoal: Let coal and ashes cool for several days in your barbeque or a metal container. To speed up cooling, carefully put coals into a metal container full of water. Store the metal container away from combustible materials. Once completely cool, place in a bag and then into your garbage.

Unused charcoal: If you can't find someone to use it up, take flammable charcoal to the Kitsap Household Hazardous Waste Facility for no charge. Package products carefully for transportation. See facility hours at the website below.
