Lost Bin

If your waste (garbage - red or dark green lidded, recycling or green/organics) bin has been lost, stolen or vandalised Council requests you check with the neighbours, and see if your bin has ended up further down your street etc before contacting Council.  

If you cannot find the bin you will need to complete a Lost Stolen Waste Bin Declaration Statement(PDF, 587KB) form or contact Council staff to discuss the matter on (02) 6333 6100.

For lost/stolen waste bin a declaration statement needs to be completed, signed and returned to Council.  The Declaration Form can be returned by MAIL to The General Manager, Bathurst Regional Council, Private Mail Bag 17 BATHURST  NSW  2795 or IN PERSON to 158 Russell Street, Bathurst or by EMAIL.

A $84 Bin Replacement Fee applies (per bin) if the bin has been lost, stolen or vandalised. This fee is an upfront cost that will need to be paid prior to the new Replacement Bin (including vandalism) being arranged for the property. This fee can be paid at the Rates Section of Council or by Credit Card over the phone.
