Puget Sound Wood Stove Program
King, Kitsap, Pierce, and Snohomish Counties
For a limited time, residents of King, Kitsap, Pierce, and Snohomish Counties can receive $500 for recycling their old, polluting wood stove.
To qualify for the recycling reward, you must own your home or property and will be responsible for removing and transporting your old device to one of our approved recycling facilities.
Eligible devices include:
- Wood stoves or fireplace inserts (which are wood stoves made to be installed inside a fireplace) that are uncertified or don’t meet the 2020 EPA standard.
- Free-standing manufactured fireplaces. Not built-in, zero-clearance or traditional brick fireplaces.
- Wood-burning furnaces or coal-burning devices.
Your device must be in working order and can be installed or uninstalled for the recycling reward. Indoor barrel stoves and trash burners are not eligible for the reward.
If you think you qualify, please scroll down to enroll in the program. After you sign up, you will be prompted to submit several photos of your device to be reviewed for eligibility.
Next Steps and Additional Information
Funding is limited; one project per household. The program is currently limited to homeowners or rental property owners.
After being approved for the recycling program, qualified applicants will receive an Agency issued coupon and instructions for recycling their stove and receiving the $500 reward. Recycling participants have 45 days to recycle their stove at one of our designated recycling facilities. Recycling facility locations and contact information will be provided with the recycling coupon.
After the 45 days, recycling offers will be cancelled and offered to other qualified applicants, unless program staff have been contacted and approved an extension.
If you have any additional questions, please contact us at email@example.com or 206-343-8800.
Old, uncertified wood stoves and inserts are particularly polluting and inefficient. These wood stoves are no longer legal to sell, purchase, give away or re-install anywhere in Washington state due to the significant pollution they generate.
