NAWMA is owned and operated by its three constituent councils: City of Salisbury, City of Playford and Town of Gawler.

NAWMA offers residents and people working with residents from its constituent councils, 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 hard waste drop-off or collection services are available for residents of NAWMA’s constituent councils.

Free trailer hire is available for residents of NAWMA’s constituent councils to use in conjunction with a hard waste drop-off service.

The roof of the Material Recovery Facility (MRF) in Edinburgh, supports a 100kW solar system.

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

NAWMA is installing a paper and plastics detecting robot to enhance recovery of material at its MRF.

Residents of NAWMA’s constituent councils 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 Food Organics and Garden Organics bin (FOGO), 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.
