THE fee for hard waste collection now in the bin.

The City of Salisbury offers a hard waste collection service for residents and Non Profit Organisations. Previously, this attracted a $10 fee but from December 2017, Council resolved to remove the charge effective immediately.

Mayor Gillian Aldridge said the removal of the fee would make the service more accessible to the community.

“We recognise the value of being able to support our community in this way and are pleased to offer some relief in this service.” 

The hard waste collection service is managed by the Northern Adelaide Waste Management Authority (NAWMA), which currently operates the area’s residential bin service.

If you need a reminder, these items below are suitable for hard waste collection:

  • Household Furniture - chairs, couches, beds, mattresses, carpets (must be rolled up)
