NAWMA offers residents and people working with residents, free tours of its facilities throughout the year.

A wide variety of items that can’t be recycled via the yellow-lid recycling bin can be recycled at NAWMA’s two Resource Recovery Centres, for example liquid paint, x-rays, used cooking oil and electronic waste.

Free trailer hire is available for residents of Salisbury and Playford councils to use in conjunction with a hard-waste voucher.

Paper collected via NAWMA’s yellow-lid recycling bins is recycled back into The Advertiser newsprint.

In 2018, NAWMA’s Material Recovery Facility (MRF) won a Local Government Professionals Australia award for ‘Excellence in Environmental Leadership and Sustainability’.

NAWMA recently secured grant funding for a paper and plastics detecting robot to enhance recovery of material at its MRF.

Residents can request a range of services including bin repairs online via NAWMA’s website.

NAWMA’s Uleybury Balefill and Renewable Energy Park won the Landfill Excellence category of the 2019 Australian Landfill and Transfer Stations Awards.

Food waste is accepted in the green-lid organics bin, which is then composted along with garden waste.

NAWMA’s two Resource Recovery Centres are open every day of the year with the exception of New Year’s Day, Good Friday, ANZAC Day and Christmas Day.
