AIBU to expect people to take their rubbish home and put it in THEIR OWN bin?

We've had a refuse collection strike in our area recently and although our ordinary rubbish has started being collected again, the organic waste (brown bins with grass, weeds etc) bins haven't. There's no knowing when they'll be collected, so people have just left them outside their driveways.

Anyway, for the last 3 days the same woman has walked past our house and deposited her sweetie wrappers etc in our brown bin. Tbh, I wouldn't really care if it was the ordinary waste bin she was using, but now I have to go through the bin lifting out all her wrappers which she couldn't be bothered to take home. It's obvious that the bin is the organic waste one, as it's full of, well, organic waste!

I just find it really rude and irritating that she would do this.

No - she's being rather obtuse and rude, imo. Mind you - it could be worse - my dses have been putting bags of dogpoo in our brown bin, and guess who had to fish them out from the very bottom and put them into the black bin? Yup - lucky, lucky me. angry

Was all ready to say YABU as the woman is putting her rubbish in a bin but then I read that it is the organic waste bin.
Could you perhaps tape a polite note to the top of the bin along the lines of 'Please do not place rubbish in this bin, organic waste only'?
