    Yep! It's a good idea really.. But there can be some downsides. It's too stop people misusing the system and costing the local council even more money.

    How do they look through your rubbish though? Before it goes in the giant truck? Do they sort through your whole bin or just glance at whats at the top?

    If your bin was empty and you clearly weren't going to fill it, then it doesn't seem so bad to stick an extra bag in every so often. But to put it in when your bin was already full is just very bad manners. I hate it when bin lids are left open - the crows get into it and throw rubbish all over the place!

    I'd walk straight down to the verge and move the extra bag back into her bin, so it was the one overflowing.

    It can't be overfilled, so if it is then they get a strike against their name. I don't think they go sifting through their bins, I think that's actually illegal.

    Im pretty sure they have one person on the back that does a quick check as its going in.

    I'm not 100% sure tbh because it only all come out about 3 months ago. It will be on going from now on though.

    You get either a green, yellow or red sticker. If you get 3 red you get banned but again I don't know the specifics of how long. We use the system properly do didn't really research it that much

    *edit* they DO go through your recycling. Everyone got letters in the mail stating this will now be happening.

    I remember when Ray Martin caught John Saffran going through his rubbish. Hilarious.

    I'll get DH to take her bag out and dump it on her lawn next time.
    I'll photograph it and post it on here. Yeah! *lol*

    No they don't sift through it. If they can see it's overflowing (lid can't be put down) then they can leave it behind.

    Next time you see her do it take a photo & then show her when you mention it. She does sound like a moll, what happened to being neighbourly? Who the hell takes ip upon themselves to overfill someone else's bin?

    Wow that's rude! We have the same 'overflowing bin' rules here and it is hard after say Christmas, or a clean out of crap etc. Luckily for us we have lots of elderly and single people living in our street so we just knock on the door and ask them if we can put an extra bag in their bin and explain what the bag has in it (so they know that we're not putting off fish or something in their bin).
    Once a local business at the end of our street half filled our empty bin with their rubbish. OMG I was soooooo unbelievably mad and made husband deal with it cause I would've have been really rude. The owner apologised profousely and said she would have a meeting so that it never happened again. It didn't.

    I'd film her doing it and then email the video to your local council and ask them to issue her with a warning...saying that you have approached her but she denies doing it.
