To be angry at my neighbour for putting rubbish in my bin? *title edited by MNHQ*

I'm a perfect recycling saint (and we have a real fire) so I normally have space.
My next door nemesis is trying to kill me and the planet by not doing ANY recycling.
ANY!
Not even dog food cans.
Now the cheeky mare is putting his ginormous black bag of doom in my bin on collection day.
And it gets worse.
He doesn't even push it down so the lid doesn't close.

If I get a yellow card from the bin men he had better run....

Cut the fucker up and put him in the compost bin grin

If you are at home on bin day wait until the last minute to put your bin out or only put your bin out every other cycle when it's full with your own rubbish and has no room for your neighbours or just tell him to stop using your bin.

or can you get a large version of the 'snake in a can' joke - scare the fucker to death

I feel your pain though - I have had to move my bins to stop the neighbour emptying his car crap (Macdonalds bags, Costa Coffee cups etc) into my bin

Take the bag out and deposit it on his doorstep. Next time he does it, rip open the bag and then deposit contents on his doorstep.

A bin is a bin but I'm precious about mine and I don't like anyone putting their stuff in it. They're not the ones who have to clean it when they chuck random food crap in it.

Mine have a skip, with a notice about 'poo bags' and they have removed all 'poo bags from skip and flung them in the street for the cars to squish.

Not so concerned about other people recycling - I do it, but if other people don't want to monkey about with their refuse I do understand.

Stabbing seems a bit excessive, though. Have you considered leaving an angry cobra in your bin?

Take his bag out and put in in front of his door. Or buy a lock

And yanbu

I feel your pain. I live in an end terrace, house next door is all but empty and next to that is rented out. To make life easier the bins are lined up in the small alleyway between and the next terrace. Tenants not only fill up their own household waste bin and empty house (which I don't mind too much) but they also put rubbish in the black glass/plastic recycling bin angry. I have complained to them and to the council and things got better for a while, but they're at it again now. hopefully they will move soon

Take the bag out and put it on the cheeky f**ker's front door step!

Fontofnowt Wed 19-Feb-14 14:58:27

I like the compost idea.
A bit too much!

I don't like him touching my bin, ever, but if they really must generate such waste in a two person home that it overspills and needs space in mine then shut the lid.
Don't make me look disorganised and slovenly by leaving the lid gaping.

It ruins my veneer of cleanliness that I like to maintain to the other neighbours.

When we were new here we arrived home tones a load of stuff hanging out the top of our bin. I donned rubber gloves to push it back in and spotted a letter in the top of the bag. I assumed the rubbish came from that house and just put it all on their doorstep!!

HazeltheMcWitch Wed 19-Feb-14 15:01:32

I second the 'ripping open his bin bag on his porch' idea.

But dress up as a fox while you're doing it.
Then take a shit on his lawn.

cookiemonster5678 Wed 19-Feb-14 15:01:43

I would take the bag out and return it to the neighbour. Tell them to stop it!
This happened to me in my old house, my neighbour filled my half empty bin up on scheduled bin day, then due to bad weather we had to wait a further week for them to be emptied. I pulled the bags out and returned them to a red faced neighbour smile

My DP has just completely inflamed the issue by telling me 'It's only a bin'.........

After living through the maggot/bluebottle wars of 2012.
After the drains blocked with baby wipe mystery of 2013.

We all know it isn't 'only' a bin.

FoxesRevenge Wed 19-Feb-14 15:08:35

grin Hazel

YANBU! I hate when people put stuff in my bin!

If you do kill him though, is he recyclable??

OnIlkleyMoorBahTwat Wed 19-Feb-14 15:20:49

Is he filling your bin because he has already filled his? It could be worse OP, my opposite neighbour dumps her rubbish on the waste ground at the side of my house shock.

I think she does it to avoid 'dirtying' her bins (her house is spotless inside and out and she is always cleaning the bins, doorstep, outside of front door etc.

She even has a doormat at the gate, so you can wipe your feet on entering the garden.

Fontofnowt Wed 19-Feb-14 15:27:11

I hate litter too OIMBT.
He fills their bin to overflowing and then overflows mine.
Like a knob I normally stick my boots on and bin stomp but today I saw the twat.

My house looks (and sometimes smells) like a bin so I'm not a clean freak I'm just being a wuss about being yellow ticketed by the bin fellas.

<prefect>

Oh fuck, I've done this - once. blush

We do recycle and have 3 different recycling bins which are collected weekly. The non-recyclable waste is only collected fortnightly. We had a medium-sized bag just after Christmas that wouldn't fit in. On my way out to work early in the morning I could hear the bin lorry coming and looked in next door's bin and saw loads of space so popped it in, the lid still fitted.

Is that a terrible crime? Do the neighbours hate me now? I've put their bins away a couple of times whilst they've been away, will they forgive me? confused

LuciusMalfoyisSmokingHot Wed 19-Feb-14 15:34:07

Take it out and throw it on garden, then hide the bins, cheeky twat.

Showy Wed 19-Feb-14 15:34:57

The parasites next door keep chucking empty wine bottles in my household waste bin. I'm biding my time. The revenge I will rain down on them.

Fontofnowt Wed 19-Feb-14 15:38:33

Blanche you were being a hero and recycling.
Lid down bin lorry incoming is a perfect ending to overspill refuse.

Lid up is heinous.
