Sod a parking dispute - I bring you a fucking wheelie bin dispute.....

(695 Posts)

Absolutely fucking livid . Probably disproportionately so as I am hormonal but I don't care .

Background description :
House then back garden then garage then fenced area then entryway . All my boundary up to where my back fence meets the entryway. I am end terraced so entry runs down left hand side of garden and house too.

Have lived here many years . Not close with any neighbors . One on the left killed my cat other across the entry is pleasant . Say good morning and exchange pleasantries but no more than that .

Have been finding bins on my bit of land behind my house for a while - thought it may have been a mistake that neighbors might have thought it was my bin and put it there all nice as you do.

Today I have just watched several of my neighbors take the bins of people who are out at work or not in off the street and put them on my land! Like the area behind my garage is a fucking neighborhood bin store ! It's not !

It's my fucking land and AIBU to tell them to get the fuck to fucking fuck and fuck off some more!!!

And breathe .

I would breathe and then go out and put them back out on the street. When someone asks what you are doing, explain sweetly to them. Then, get a sign made, saying it is your land and only your bin can go there.

No way!

Do they have numbers on them? If so, go and knock on the houses this evening and ask them to come fetch their bin off your land. Or drag them out into the road, way down the road from your house.

Is it obvious that this is your land? Might they be thinking it is some common ground and are just being helpful in taking in bins off the street?

I'd be furious too but I'm really territorial where things like this are concerned. I would tape a (reasonably) polite note to each bin that shouldn't be there and do it every time it happens, explaining that it's on your property.

Fucking hell they killed your cat and now they are putting wheelie bins in your garden.

Tbh I would be more aggrieved about the cat. What on earth happened?

Can you put a sign up: Private land, please don't leave your bins here

If it's open maybe they really dont know it's private land. Just get a sign saying private land do not store bins here they will be removed

Hide all the bins in your garage

So they are essentially putting the bins in my back garden but I can't normally see as it's the bit behind my garage . I only saw as I happened to be in an upstairs bedroom as they were bringing the bins up the entryway into my back garden .

You need to be sitting on your garage roof with a high-pressure hose.

Zachary I like your style

We need a diagram.

Arfarfanarf Fri 26-Aug-16 13:24:19

Then perhaps glue a note to the bin.
Stop putting your bin on private land.

Or go and have a word with those taking it upon themselves to move other people's bin onto your land and tell them to pack it in.

you could:

1. Put them in the garage and say they are yours as they are on your land.

2. Put them in the garage and claim that you have paid council for new/extra ones so when these appeared on YOUR LAND you assumed these were your new bins.

or the best option IMO

3. Hide your bins and put all your rubbish in the other ones. When confronted look puzzled and say "But they are in my garden? Why have you put them in MY garden if they are your bins?" and repeat looking more and more puzzled every time

Remove one or two bins each week. Do it at night if you have to....you must not be seen.

Watch your neighbours turn on each other lord of the flies-style as they now fight to take protective custody of remaining bins to avoid being the one nailed with replacement fees from the council.

Enjoy.

<evil cackle>

Hire a van, take all the bins to the seaside for a day out. Leave them there.

Cheesymonster Fri 26-Aug-16 13:34:57

Good diagram. I approve of the colours and helpful key.

I would take the opportunity to have a spring clean and fill their bins up with my old toot.

PovertyPain Fri 26-Aug-16 13:38:56

Buy a chain, link it through all the handles and lock it with a few padlocks, so it takes ages to pick them. Make sure you hide a video camera so we can all have a laugh later.

What cheeky fucker thought that was acceptable.
