​Disposal instructions depend on the type of boat you have: metal or fiberglass.


Metal Boats

Contact a scrap metal recycler or auto wrecker to ask about recycling your metal boat. Kitsap County facilities do not recycle metal boats because they are too large for our scrap metal containers.


Fiberglass Boats

Linden Salvage provides boat disposal at a central location to residents.


Dispose at Olympic View Transfer Station. Fiberglass and non-metal boats under 20 feet only.

Follow these instructions:

  1. Remove and recycle the motor, gas tank, fluids, and battery before disposal.
  2. Customers must unload the boat unassisted by staff. When using a tipping trailer or dump truck, a hard hat and high-visiblity vest must be worn while on the tipping floor. 
  3. Olympic View bulky waste disposal rate applies
Vessel Turn-In Program

The Department of Natural Resources offers a Vessel Turn-In Program which allows boat owners who can no longer take care of their vessels to turn them in for free disposal. 

Boat Trailers 

Not accepted at waste facilities. Trailers can be recycled at licensed auto wreckers.
