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.

Resident Service

The City of Salisbury provides two free hard waste services per financial year for residents to dispose of hard waste.  See the list below for material eligible to be disposed of via these services.

Residents may choose two services per financial year (1 July to 30 June) of either of the following options:

Option 1 Voucher System

The Voucher System, providing residents with access to either the Pooraka Waste Transfer Station or Edinburgh North Waste Transfer Station free of charge, for one 2.1m x 1.5m x 2.0m metre trailer load per year.  To order your voucher please ring NAWMA on free-call 1800 111 004.  Please provide your mobile phone contact number as the voucher will be sent via text to your mobile phone.  Office Hours 8.30 am to 5.00 pm Monday to Friday.  You can also order your voucher online here via NAWMA's website.

Option 2 Hard Waste Home Collection Service

Residents can book a home collection of up to 2 cubic metres of waste, with bookings collected within a 4 week period.  All items should be placed for collection before 7am on the pick up day.  Items must be neatly stacked inside your property boundary, not on the verge.  To book your Hard Waste collection, call NAWMA on 1800 111004 or email admin@nawma.sa.gov.au.  The collection service can also be booked online here via NAWMA's website.
