Draft Mobile Garbage Bin Issue and Replacement Policy

With the introduction of the 3-bin collection system and Council providing the bins as part of the roll out, the policy sets out the number of bins to be issued and the situation in which either Council or the property owner pays for a replacement bin if required. The draft policy states:

1)            Dwellings and businesses located within Council’s designated kerbside collection areas shall be allocated 1 x 240L garbage bin, 1 x 240L organics bin and 1 x 240L recycling bin, with additional bins as agreed with fee set out in Council’s Fees and Charges.
2)            The Bins are to remain with the premises.  Where bin is removed, the new owner/s will be responsible for the cost of replacement.
3)            In the case of lost, stolen or damaged MGBs, the landholder may request a new MGB from Hay Shire Council which will be provided as soon as possible with a replacement charge payable by the landholder, as set each year in Council’s Fees and Charges. 
Any MGB provided by Council that is stolen or damaged beyond repair by unknown persons at no fault of the landholder, including bins worn out due to age, may be replaced free of charge, at the discretion of the General Manager, provided the theft or damage has been reported to Council or the Police and a copy of the Police Report number or signed statutory declaration is submitted to Council, unless proven bin damaged by Council’s Contractor/staff.

Council has resolved to place the draft policy on public exhibition, with comments able to be received to the General Manager, Hay Shire Council, 134 Lachlan Street, Hay, emailed to or via the Your Say page by 5.00pm Friday 3rd May 2024.
