Consumer fireworks ban

In 2013, a majority of voters in both Olympia and Lacey approved a ban on consumer fireworks (OMC 9.48.160). This means that fireworks may not be sold or discharged in either community. Fireworks purchased elsewhere, such as tribal stands or fireworks sales booths in other communities, may not be used in Olympia or Lacey.

Novelty devices such as snakes, glowworms, and party poppers are permitted; however sparklers and all other types of fireworks are not.

Disposing of unused fireworks

To safely dispose of unused fireworks:

  1. Thoroughly soak them overnight in a bucket or tub of water, then drain.
  2. Place the soaked fireworks in a heavy duty trash bag, and tightly seal.
  3. Place the bag in your garbage container for pick-up.
