New Fireworks Regulations in 2018

Fireworks Safety

The sale, purchase and discharge of consumer fireworks within the City of Tumwater is prohibited at all times of the year.

The Tumwater fireworks ban is similar to the ban previously approved by Olympia and Lacey voters. This means that fireworks may not be sold, purchased or discharged in the cities of Lacey, Olympia and Tumwater.

Fireworks purchased or sold in other communities, may not be used in Tumwater.

The fireworks ban does not apply to public displays or to the sale, use and discharge of small trick and novelty device, such as snakes, glow worms, and party poppers.

Sparklers and all other types of "safe and sane" fireworks are prohibited.

What should I do with unused fireworks?

Unused fireworks may be easily and safely disposed of at home:

  • Soak fireworks overnight in a bucket or tub of water, then drain.
  • Place soaked fireworks in a heavy duty trash bag, and seal tightly.
  • Place the bag in your garbage container for pick-up.
