Bardibas Municipality is located in Mahottari District, Madhesh Province of Nepal. It has total 14 wards and covers the area of 315.57 square kilometres. It is surrounded by Kamalamai Municipality of Sindhuli District in North, Aurahi and Bhangaha Municipalities in south, Dhanusha District in the east and Sarlahi District in the west. According to national population and housing census 2021, Bardibas Municipality has a total population of 74,361 and 16,824 households. The total male and female are 36,711 and 37,650 respectively. The population density of the municipality is 236 people per square kilometre.

96% of the households in the municipality have a toilet. The 4% of the households without toilet defecate in nearby farms and forest. The municipality has a public toilet in a bus park area. The public toilet was constructed by Bardibas Small Town Water Supply and Sanitation User's Organization and is operated by individual service provider.

The SFD graphic shows that 65% of the excreta or faecal sludge generated are safely managed while 35 % are unsafely managed. The safely managed FS generated by 64% of the population is temporary as these FS is only contained. So once the containment gets filled and FS from the containment is emptied, the percentage of unsafely managed excreta would increase. The faecal sludge generated from 1% of the population is contained and safely treated in anaerobic biogas digesters.
