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. Residents can choose to have items collected from the front of their property or use a voucher to drop off items at either the Pooraka Resource Recovery Centre or Edinburgh North Resource Recovery Centre.  To arrange a hard waste collection or voucher for drop off, please contact NAWMA on 8259 2100 or complete the online form

 See the list below for material eligible to be disposed of via these services.

Hard waste bookings are collected within a four 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).
