The Mercer Island Fire & Police Departments work in partnership to provide fireworks disposal services to the community.
Citizens who wish to dispose of unused only fireworks should transport them to either Fire Station 91 (downtown), or to the Mercer Island Police Department at City Hall.
Do not store or transport fireworks in plastic bags as they can create static electricty which can result in an ignition source for the fireworks. Fireworks should be separated and stored in paper bags.
Do not put unused fireworks in water either. Due to the chemical make-up of the powder used in fireworks, putting old fireworks in water actually increases their instability and can result in premature and unexpected ignition.
If you have additional questions about disposing of fireworks, contact the Fire Department at 206.275.7607.
