    I wasn't trying to say you were. I just making a point.

    Being on the footpath doesn't make it fair game.

    Thanks for all the responses guys. It seems fairly evenly divided between those who care and those who don't.
    I will keep this thread in mind next time I'm out walking the dog.

    And to the pp who opened the bag to see what was in it....my doggy bags are covered in dog bones so it would be easy to guess

    This thread has certainly given me a giggle! I wouldn't care if someone put poo in my bin..

    I've seen our rubbish truck man get out of his truck with a shovel, pick up all the spilt rubbish and shovel it back into the bins... Don't all the rubbish truck drivers do this? This was last year during a tropical storm, so it wasn't even him that spilt the bins, it was the wind...

    As for the original question, I don't have a dog, but I would take it home..

    And to the comments about washing the bins, I wash ours all the time! If it's not kept pretty clean, maggots breed in there and it also stinks in the heat and humidity.. I do it nearly every Monday, I would crack it if there was stinky dog poo in there!

    I guess that's where we differ. If my bin stays out on the street I expect there will be some rubbish of some sort in my bin at the end of the day. Take away coffee cup, empty bottle of drink, an empty packet that once contained food, a bag of dog poo. It doesn't bother me at all. And if I leave my bin near the front fence but not down the back of my house it wouldn't worry me if someone stopped and put their rubbish in my bin. I am of the opinion that it's just an outside garbage bin.

    I don't think I'd even notice if some one put doggydoo in my bin tbh! If they chucked it in without a bag *that* would be annoying. Or left it on my nature strip without picking it up. It's tiny, so it's not going to fill up the bin. It's in a bag, so it's not going to stink. I don't see the problem.

    Maybe we should add 'first world problem" to the title of this thread.

    I'd rather have rubbish put in my bin then left on my nature strip.

    Yes I pick it up. Like recently when my neighbour decided to put their rubbish in my bin, meaning that the lid was left open an inch so the crows got it open and spread it across the road - I had to pick it up. If they had put their own rubbish in their own bin DH and I wouldn't have been out on the street at 7am putting rubbish back in the bin in time for the truck.
    Just moved into a newly built house, had to pay the council several hundred dollars for the bins too, so I def consider them my property not a free- for-all.
