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.
