Need to get rid of some junk furniture? You’re in luck. A one-day-only event this June gives you the opportunity to dispose of your unwanted furniture for free.
The “Junk Furniture Roundup” is 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 7 at the Olympic View Transfer Station in the Olympic View Industrial Park across from the Bremerton National Airport on Highway 3, according to a press release.
The following non-repairable, unusable furniture will be accepted at no charge during the June 7 event:
- Tables and chairs
- Patio furniture
- File cabinets
- Entertainment centers
- Sleeper sofas
- Baby furniture
Be prepared to unload your own items and to experience extended wait times.
Loads of garbage are charged the regular rate.
Household hazardous waste is not accepted at the event. All loads will be pre-screened on site.
Secure your load with a tarp, cargo net, chains, straps and/or bungee cords. Tie larger items directly to your vehicle or trailer. If any light weight or loose material can fly out of a moving vehicle, cover the load with a tarp. Driving with an unsecured load in your vehicle is a violation of Washington State law, with fines ranging from a $216 traffic violation to a $5,000 fine and jail time if something falling out of your vehicle causes bodily harm.
Residents should be sure the items they bring for disposal are not in good enough condition for reuse by local charities. The Solid Waste Division homepage at www.kitsapgov.com/sw has a complete list of locations to donate good, usable items. Furniture that is too good to toss can also be listed on thewww.2good2toss.com website. Residents can list items at no cost. All items listed must sell for $99 or less and many items are free.
