Putting stuff in neighbours bin.


Neighbours have gone away for a few weeks. We have been having a clear out. Bins full already, would it be awfull to put stuff in their bin? Its all stuff like broken toys, things that cant be recycled. All the usual food waste and nappys are in our bin, everything that can be recycled is in recycling. Im happy to be told its rude and not to do it.

How close are you with them? If you're not too close, I personally wouldn't. I don't really know why, but it would feel wrong (even though they clearly won't be using the bin, since they're away).

Another question - do you think they would mind?

It depends on how close you are to them. We are close to the neighbours on one side and we both wouldn't mind if the other used the bin during not being at home.
I don't know the people on the other side though so I would feel a bit presumptuous and rude and probably not do it!

Our old neighbours did this and I was fuming. To be fair we weren't away or anything though! If the bin will be emptied before they are back I suppose you could but I don't think I personally would.

I wouldn't personally. It'd be just typical if some curtain twitching neighbour caught me and told the bin owner!

We arent that close. We say hello, we exchanged chocolates at christmas. They said we were welcome to use their drive if we had visitors and asked us to bring their bin in. I dont think we will use their bin. We plan to be here for a while, last thing i need is a falling out.

Maybe I am rude but if I had access to their vin without trespassing (not in their private garden etc) and it will be emptied before they ever got home I'd do it. But I wouldn't mind if someone did it when we were away, as long as it didn't leave a mess. I would be bothered if someone did it while we were there because we fill our bins and more before collection day.
Eta: if it was a neighbour I didn't get on with, it would bother me whatever

We've done it but in fairness we were watching their house for them and setting out their bins anyways so we threw a bit of stuff in too In that instance I highly doubt they minded. I doubt I would have done it if we weren't house sitting though.

I would use their bin . If they are away I dont see the harm. Just put it out on collection day.

I wouldn't mind if one of my neighbours did it. I would only want the bin back where it was.

If your worried about someone seeing you cant you fill it the night before and just leave it out for collection next to your bin.

I seem to be in the minority here, but I personally don't see why it would be a problem. They're obviously not going to need to use their bin, and as long as the rubbish is collected and the bin is back where it should be on their return, I can't see why there'd be an issue. I'd use my next door neighbours' under the same circumstances, and I wouldn't mind at all if they used mine.
