Within its Council boundary, Tamworth Regional Council operates 11 waste management facilities, six of the facilities dispose of the waste on site and are known as landfills – you may call them a tip. The remaining five facilities are waste transfer stations.
Council operates a large regional landfill in the city of Tamworth and the remainder of the waste management facilities are located in the rural areas of the region.
Operating hours and days vary at each site so please check prior to attending.
What Waste is Accepted
The type of waste accepted at sites varies significantly. Save yourself time and money by checking the type of waste that can be accepted before driving to the tip.
Landfill (Tip) Locations
There are seven landfills which receive and bury garbage onsite. Location maps for the respective sites can be found below:
Location of Rural Waste Transfer Facilities
There are three rural sites which operate solely as Waste Transfer Stations where garbage and recycling is collected in large bins and transported back to Tamworth for final disposal or recycling. These sites are only suitable for small vehicles.
Location maps and conditions of entry can be downloaded from the locations below. Check the types of waste and recycling accepted table before you go.
