Official Nhulunbuy Corporation Information

A bi-weekly 140l wheelie bin garbage collection is provided by the Corporation to all residential properties within the town lease, using a local contractor, Arnhem Land Pest Control.  Collection days are generally Tuesdays and Fridays, although occasional changes are necessary due to Public Holidays.
In addition, a garden refuse hookbin collection service is provided at strategic locations throughout the Town Lease on a four weekly cycle.  Residents should retain garden refuse on their property until a blue hooklift bin is in place at the Garden Waste Transit Station.

The Tip

All general waste is transported to the Waste Management Facility located approximately 2kms from town on Melville Bay Road – towards the Airport.  This facility is the responsibility of the Corporation and managed by Gumatj Waste Management Pty Ltd and is open seven days per week between 7am and 6pm.  Residents may use the facility free of charge by virtue of the annual garbage charge but Commercial users need to pay based on quantities delivered to the Waste Facility.
