Curbside Garbage

WM provides weekly, every other week, monthly and on-call garbage collection in unincorporated Kitsap County.

Containers Out by 6 am


Collection times may vary as routing schedules change, and so it is very important to have all containers at the street by 6 am. We appreciate your cooperation.

Please remove all containers from the street as soon as possible after collection.


Container Placement at the Street


Place carts:

  • Three (3) feet apart
  • At least three (3) feet from cars, trees, mailboxes, fences
  • Cart wheels as close to the curb as possible
  • Cart lids opening toward street

    When possible, trucks with robotic arms will lift, empty and replace the carts without the drivers leaving the trucks, reducing safety hazards and traffic congestion.


  • Weight Limit 65 Pounds (Overweight containers will not be emptied)
    • Cans, bins, bundles and carts up to 32-gallon size are lifted and emptied by hand. For your safety and the safety of your collectors, please limit each 32-gallon unit to no more than 65 pounds.
    • Larger carts are lifted mechanically, and are limited to 180 pounds.

    Extra Garbage


    There is an an additional charge for each extra bag or container (32-gallon, 65 lb. limit) that doesn't fit in your garbage container with the lid closed. If you often have extra garbage, you may want to increase your garbage container size to avoid overflow and extra garbage charges.
