Household Rubbish Smugglers….

By dks00k - 28 May 2014 37

I have just discovered that a neighbour dumps their excess household rubbish in their neighbours bins as they have insufficient room in their own bin.

What would you do in this circumstance???

What’s Your opinion?

I used to hate when my neighbours filled my bin with their rubbish after I’d put it out. If I had any extra rubbish to add there was no room. Then I found some very interesting personal letters. No attempt to destroy them. Just put in on top of my rubbish. Now I leave room so I can get the next installment. My partner thinks this is terrible behaviour on my part. I reckon if it is my bin, I can read it.

I wouldn’t worry about it. The bins are not large enough, and there’s several of my neighbours who ‘share’ bins when their bin is full.

There are much bigger things in life to be concerned about.

I find that annoying too. Some, don’t give a … people, generate so much rubbish that it boggles the mind. The first two comments make me suspicious they are some of those people. Most times it takes me two or three weeks to fill a single (shopping bag sized or smaller) plastic bag with household rubbish, while some others have bins overflowing every week. My bin doesn’t get smelly because I compost, so after finding the neighbour’s unnecessary excess rubbish in mine, now I only put my bin out every few weeks, and even then it is rarely full. If I waited till it was full, most times it would only need to go out every few months. Be pleased, those of you that fill their bins every week, that my rates and those of others like me, are subsisting your lazy lifestyle, that includes the idea that the world is one big tip just for you.
By the way, what do you manage to fill your bins with every week so that it overflows and then you look to your neighbours’ bins? I would have to consciously try very hard to manage that week after week. Probably bring home rubbish, as I don’t see how I could generate that much at home.

As long as neighbours ask, and I have the room. I wouldn’t care if they topped up my bin with their rubbish. (key words “topped up”)

However, my garbage bin wasn’t collected last week.. No idea why it was missed. This annoyed me as it was full and clearly I wanted some room for this last weeks rubbish. Main reason it was full – because when I wheeled it in the week before, there was still rubbish in my bin. I knew it wasn’t mine as I dont use black garbage bags.

Thanks for your esteemed advice.
I’ll check back with you when your own bin is that full you have nowhere to put your own rubbish. Then again, its probably clowns like you responsible for it.

Well your excessive use of the third person did make your post sound like the local busy-body with nothing else to do but stare out the window to observe one neighbour using another neighbour’s bin.
Did you really mean “I’ve just discovered that a neighbour is using MY bin?” That’s different.

For the record, my rubbish bin is somewhere between a quarter and a half full every week. The recycling bin is always full every fortnight and we compost.

Seeing as how my bin has never been full (like Maya123 I don’t put it out every week) I might as well reply now – my neighbor asks me if they can use my bin and I always say yes because I’m not an a-hole (well, not a total one) and, quite frankly, I don’t care!

If your bin gets filled up as a result, put your rubbish in the bin of the people on the other side… sooner or later somewhere around the block there will be space.

Would you rather the “household rubbish smuggler” just dump their excess rubbish on the curb and not place it in a bin at all?

What exactly is the issue here? That the neighbour doesn’t ask before using the rubbish bin or that you are that concerned with someone elses household rubbish being in your bin, whiich is provided to you by the government for the purpose of rubbish disposal…

I didn’t specifically say MY bin because it is numerous bins. Multiple bags of rubbish placed in MY bin along with 4 others. The issue is that I’d like to have some space left to put my own rubbish prior to collection. Doesnt seem too much to ask really, particularly when the pigs that produce so much rubbish on a weekly basis only need to cough up an additional 50 odd bucks a year for an extra bin.

Don’t put your bin out until the morning of collection when you know you won’t need to add more? Did you know these bins are not actually your property? They belong to the Government for your use.
