Shoal Bay is the home of City of Darwin’s waste and recycling management facility and our renewable energy facility. A recycle shop and mulch facility are also on site.
Shoal Bay Waste Management Facility services the greater Darwin region and is the only licenced landfill in the area and operates under EPL-188. The facility comprises of a lined putrescible waste landfill and an inert landfill cell.
Shoal Bay Waste Management Facility receives over 180,000 tonnes of waste per annum and has a forecasted operational life until 2034. To improve ongoing operational management and meet increasing regulatory and environmental standards, a number of upgrades are underway to advance the facility for the future.
Our aim is to reduce the volume of material entering the landfill at Shoal Bay by encouraging the separation of materials that can be recycled from general waste before being disposed.
The Recycle Shop is operated independently by Helping People Achieve (HPA): a community based organisation that provides opportunities for people with disabilities to undertake various activities within the community and to learn the skills required to move into the world of employment.
Before you head to the transfer station, pop into the Recycle Shop and visit the friendly team from HPA to see if your items can be repurposed or resold.
The Recycle Shop has commenced trading in late August. You can buy pre-loved items as well as drop off goods for repurpose or resold.
