Hard waste

Hard Waste Service

The City of Salisbury offers a Hard Waste Service for residents and Non Profit Organisations (excluding Government agencies).

The service is available to both residents and bona fide Salisbury non profit organisations (Church groups, sporting clubs, rotary clubs etc). The service is NOT extended to government agencies.

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