OK, so I’m not sure if I’m being unreasonable.
Yesterday was bin day so I left my bin out and left for the day. When I got home to pull my bin back into the garage I realised there was rubbish in my bin. Not just any rubbish, 2 Stinky, oily cans of tuna! I ALWAYS keep my rubbish bagged before it goes in the wheelie so to minimise the stench (as it lives in my garage)…
I know it’s a bin and you put rubbish in a bin, but is it wrong for me to feel slightly pee’d that someone has thrown their smelly rubbish in my bin?

  • The stink of food like that also attracts vermin. It is also hard to get small items out of a bin unless you are strong enough to tip the bin upside down then stand it up again. Then where are you going to store it where it doesn’t stink and attract vermin ???

  • It is your perfect right to be annoyed! I don’t mind if it is on bin night, and I have room, go for it neighbours, but your situation is disgusting!

  • I have also seen people use someone else’s skip bin. They cost a fortune and this is not right.

  • Yes, you do have a right to feel this way, it was inconsiderate. Having said that, I often share my wheelie bins with my neighbour and vice versa. If ones a little full, I share the rubbish around, no problems. But we are thoughtful rubbish sharers. Nothing goes into their bin that I wouldn’t put in mine

  • I’ll confess – I use other people’s bins but only on bin day BEFORE they are picked up. I don’t mind if people use mine either. Stinky fish cans though seems like someone didn’t want it in their own bin.

  • I’m ok if some one put rubbish in my FULL bin…. but not after it’s been emptied.

  • No. not unreasonable at all, I know it is only rubbish, but everyone has their own bin and if they don’t they need to get one, we have 3 bins with our councils regimented process, but our weekly household rubbish goes in one bin and my husband is fanatical about it, it has a liner and all rubbish is bagged before it goes in, then he ties up the liner when he puts it out, we are home during the day and I am sure that he has a gps on the rubbish truck so that he can rush out and bring it back in so no one can use it and make it messy, the other bins are for recycles and green waste, and the processes that those bins go thru are amazing, but we like our bins clean as we keep them right by our garage door and we do not want them smelling aweful, it is not hard to keep them clean.

  • its not wrong to be P.Oed at someone elses stinky rubbish that you have to smell, but as you say its a bin its for rubbish and who cares there are better things to stress about.

  • Absolutely; it is indeed annoying as bins need cleaning.

  • I’d be annoyed! One Xmas someone threw a ham bone with meat attached into our yard!

  • Well..yeah it’s annoying. And yes I would be annoyed if someone did that to us, particularly as we have small bins to begin with but at least they didn’t litter. At the end of the day if you’re worried about it smelling, you can get them out and bag them. Again, not nice but we should focus on the positives :)

  • I would be really annoyed – my husband would almost be setting up surveillance to catch the culprit!


    • I would be annoyed as well. People haven’t done it where I have been for the best part of a decade, but back in the inner city suburbs of Melbourne this was a common occurrence when people found their bins were over flowing they would just shove their odd bits and pieces in someone else’s. It’s a little disrespectful when you think that if they have used up their quota, they should bag what is surplus and leave it inside and as soon as the garbage truck has been put it out for the following week. Lol I couldn’t help but chuckle with the image of your hubby setting up surveillance to catch the culprit.
