It's not OK to put your dog crap in my wheelie bin

The bin men have changed our collection time its now late afternoon. DD2 and I went to the post office and when we came back bin emptied. All good so far. DD2 asks are we going to take the bin in but because I couldn't be arsed to wash my hands yet again, I said no leave it. Then I forgot about it until next morning.

Next morning went to retrieve bin and throw a black sack in and there in the bottom was ...... a package of dog poo.


If I wanted dog poo in my bin, I'ld have my own bloody dog. I am now the custodian of poop for a week. Why should I be just because I didn't take my bin in quick enough.

I suspect it was the woman who deliberately brings her greyhounds to the small greenward in front of my house to let her dogs have a crap and piss up the cherry trees. She lives about 2 minutes walk away. I suppose the doggy brigade will say be thankful she bags her dogs poo. So why then be so inconsiderate as to dump it in my bin.

Yes I'm annoyed.

no it's not okay - that's rank

I've had the same thing happen to me too. We live on a small road leading to a park. It used to bug me, but what's the alternative - it's better than stepping in a pile of poo right outside my gate!

If the dog and owner were walking away from the park, and the dog decided to do a poo outside my house, I wouldn't honestly expect the owner to bag it up and walk back to the park to bin it, or to carry it home with them (yuk!).

It's a weelie bin, it stays outdoors, and considering the amount of poo filled nappies I've thrown in it, a bit of dog poo is nothing!

So, YANBU to be annoyed, but I think it beats the alternative!

I wouldn't be annoyed as I've heard dog poo would put off the racoons which eat from our green bin but suspect YANBU.

Yanbu. Isn't it also illegal to do this? I'd keep a lookout next time and catch the bitch in action, then unleash the rage.

I've had an issue with people letting their dogs crap on the front path in front if our street. We campaigned for a dog poo bin. We now HAVE a dog poo bin. And people still don't fecking use it.

So unless you are the dog poo leaver, YANBU about anything dog poo related unless it is being put in a poo bin or taken home with the dog owner.

OP, YANBU, that's rank.

umm.. its a bin. confused

Not quite sure what your problem is. i dont think a tiny bag of dog poo is going to take up much room in your bin, or cause your bin to get too heavy, or contaminate your bin. So what is wrong with you?

Tee2072 Fri 02-Nov-12 06:13:43

Better than on your pavement. I don't see the problem.

Chopstheduck Fri 02-Nov-12 06:19:21


I agree with the aptly named whogivesashit grin

DolomitesDonkey Fri 02-Nov-12 06:36:40

Yabu a little strange to prefer piles on the green, still - it takes all sorts.

Do you keep your wheelie bin inside the house? That's minging.

HarlettOScara Fri 02-Nov-12 06:36:58

I don't understand the righteous indignation? It's a bin and one bagged poo. It has no effect on your ability to use your bin.

aimingtobeaperfectionist Fri 02-Nov-12 06:44:21

The dog owners around here let their dogs crap on our driveways- and don't clean it up. Think yourself lucky.

AgentProvocateur Fri 02-Nov-12 06:48:20

It's a bin that's presumably outdoors. The poo is in a bag. I really don't know what the problem is...

AnitaBlake Fri 02-Nov-12 06:48:24

I honestly don't get this. People complain that dog pop is left on pavements and grass. Dog walkers are made to pick it up and put it in sealed bags. Non-doggy people then complain about the sealed bags being disposed of in a sanitary manner, I.e. In a nearby wheelie bin, or "shock horror" a public waste bin!!! What do these people use their bins for?

It's a bin confused
And what's the problem with "deliberately brings her greyhounds to the small greenward in front of my house to let her dogs have a crap and piss up the cherry trees." Where else would you suggest she takes them? Is it better than on the pavement?

HarlettOScara Fri 02-Nov-12 06:59:22

And, no, it's not illegal to put dog poo in a wheelie bin. Even someone else's wheelie bin.

I have seen people be precious about some weird shit (pardon the pun) on MN but this takes precious to new levels.

ShouldaWouldaCoulda Fri 02-Nov-12 07:01:36

YANBU. Who wants someone else's dog shit in their bin?

It is the lesser of two evils though, rather have it in my bin than walk into a pile of the steamy stuff.

BumpInTheNightFuglies Fri 02-Nov-12 07:04:48

I agree OP, it's a flaming cheek and I'd be annoyed too. You just don't use other people's bins - it's rude. Carry it back to your own bin or one of those dog poo bins.

LtEveDallas Fri 02-Nov-12 07:05:45

I don't understand any of the OP confused

It's 'rubbish' going in a 'rubbish' bin. Why is that an issue? If its bagged then it isn't 'contaminating' your bin and unless it's an elephant sized poo it's hardly going to take up any space. Do you only throw away 'clean' rubbish?

Neither do I understand your ire at the dogs doing their business on the grass in front of the house - unless the dog owner didn't pick it up. The grass doesn't care, the cherry trees don't care, why do you care? That bit of grass is probably soaked in the piss and shite of foxes, hedgehogs, squirrels and birds - none of which is picked up (and oh my God fox poo is nasty), so how much harm does a bit of greyhound poo cause?

OP, you are barking! grin

FatimaLovesBread Fri 02-Nov-12 07:15:50

Why's it rude to use someone else's bin? It's not like she's traipsing down with 3 bin liners full of household rubbish, it's a small bag of shit. Just as I have often popped a small item of rubbish in a wheelie bin if there's no other bin available.

jimmenycricket Fri 02-Nov-12 07:18:50

On a technical level, once it's in the bin, it belongs to the council not you - as they are contracted to carry it away and take care of it from that point onwards once you've put it out for them, so the offence is against the council and guess what, other residents have the same contract. Technically the bins belong to the council as well (except strangely for recycling bins).

So OP I am afraid YABU. It is grim but since idiots have taken to bagging their dog poo and hanging it by little nappy bags off the railings of my garden wall my sympathy is a bit limited angry

MrsHoarder Fri 02-Nov-12 07:19:25

I'm not sure that its acceptable to put dog poo in someone else's Shelly bin, but it certainly is better than the shit on my garden path that I ran the pram through.

Should definitely be carried home

MrsHoarder Fri 02-Nov-12 07:22:50

Its rude to use someone else's bin because these days the council have shrunk our bins and reduced collections to try to force us to recycle more. Our weekly bin is full by collection, if the large numbers of dog Walkers and school children who pass my house each day treated it as a public bin then I'd have nowhere to put nappies.

BumpInTheNightFuglies Fri 02-Nov-12 07:24:45

It will make the bin stink Fatima ! Thats why it's rude. My bins only get collected once a fortnight, so I'd have to put up with it for even longer. Why should anyone have dog poo in their bin when they don't even have a dog?

BraaaaaainsButterfield Fri 02-Nov-12 07:25:03

YABU - it's a bin! I've put things like crisp packets or used tissues in peoples' bins as well when I'm on a long residential street with no litter bins. I'd prefer people to use our bin instead of leaving empty beer cans on my garden wall which happens from time to time.
