Regional Waste Management Facility
The Alice Springs Regional Waste Management Facility was built to enhance environmental sustainability via a variety of long term recycling and waste minimisation strategies and to provide a location for advanced waste management and recycling for all communities in Central Australia. This includes those serviced by Yulara, MacDonnell Regional Council, Central Desert Regional Council and Barkly Regional Council.
The Waste Transfer Station provides a sorting area where waste is screened prior to disposal so that recyclables can be separated from the waste stream and to permit the identification of waste that is inappropriate for direct landfill disposal. The baler at the Regional Waste Management Facility bales a range of these separated items, which are then transported to major recycling facilities interstate.
The Regional Waste Management Facility is located on Commonage Road. Open 8am — 4pm 7 days (closed Good Friday, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day).
Call 8950 4340 for more details.
Schools are encouraged to visit the facility for learning opportunities regarding waste management and teachers can make these arrangements by contacting Council’s Environment Officer on 8950 0594.
