Services Waste Recycling Waste Collection

Waste and Recycling

On behalf of the City of Salisbury the Northern Adelaide Waste Management Authority (NAWMA) operates a weekly general waste collection service, a fortnightly recycling service, and a fortnightly greenwaste service.

Garden and food organics bins are emptied on the alternate week to the recyclables bin collection.

Bins should be placed on the kerb, with wheels closest to your home, by 7 am on the day of collection.

Bin Collection Days

Refer to the calendar on the NAWMA website for the current bin collection days.

Garbage Bins

Residents are provided with:

  • Free 140L General Rubbish mobile garbage bin
  • Free 240L Recycling mobile garbage bin made from 50% new and 50% recycled plastic.

Bins are delivered at no charge, usually within two working days of being requested.

The bins provided remain the property of NAWMA and are registered to aid in theft recovery. These bins must be left at a property when you move.

Green Waste and Hard Waste

City of Salisbury residents can use a hard waste service to recycle large items that cannot be placed in the yellow-lid kerbside bin.

NAWMA provides each household with two, free hard-waste services each financial year (July to June).

You can choose to have your items collected from the front of your property or you can use a voucher and take your items to one of two local Resource Recovery Stations (Public Waste Transfer Stations)

The Resource Recovery Centre at Research Road, Pooraka will also take green waste and garden clippings.

Salisbury Council residents who can provide identification by way of drivers' licence, household bill or rates notice will be charged a discounted fee. More information is available here.

Organics Program

To participate in the food organics and garden organics (FOGO) program, residents can obtain a kerbside green waste bin from NAWMA, free of charge. Please contact NAWMA directly to obtain a food organics and green organics kerbside bin.
