Recycling & Waste Facilities

The Armidale Waste Management Facility is designed to maximise recycling and reuse of material. At the Transfer Station you are encouraged to sort your load into various skips. If your load is mixed/or contaminated and only fit for landfill, you will be charged a higher fee. Council reserves the right to weigh loads both going into and out of the landfill. 

Customers are reminded fees and charges are applied to some services at waste management facilities. Customers are also advised the facilities operate on a strictly nil cash payment basis and only accept credit/debit cards for payment.

Plant Material Source Form & Asbestos Disposal Booking Form

The Armidale Waste Management Facility on Long Swamp Road accepts bulk garden waste that exceeds the green lid bin capacity.  Separating your green waste and submitting the Plant Material Source Form enables Council to better manage weeds and invasive plants in the region and comply with NSW EPA requirements for producing and supplying mulch. This ensures a high-quality mulch that we can provide back to the community.

All customers bringing in plant material for disposal at the Armidale Waste Management Facility are required to complete a Plant Material Source Form which can be found in the link below.
