    My neighbors are bizarre. Actually That's a understatement.

    But it's her bin and if she wants it to smell like roses or lavender that her right.

    Me I couldn't give a flying hoot. In fact we are people that like to pick all the rubbish that we see on our walks.

    I thought once the bin left your house - as in put outside on the nature strip then it's not yours anymore? So technically anyone can use it to put rubbish in?

    A few months ago the rubbish truck came and emptied our bin but during the process, rubbish had been spilt all over our verge. I took a photo with my phone and then called the local council to complain. They sent someone out to clean it up.

    I pay for the rubbish collection through my rates, it is not a free service so I expect the rubbish to be collected without it being spilled all over the verge.

    I would probably be a bit annoyed, but then again I rarely look in my bin when I'm bringing it in, so i probably wouldn't even notice. In regards to the OP, I would probably just do B or C out of courtesy to the bin owner.

    When the floods happened 4 years ago we had a fortnight between bin collections because of the flooding in the area. People had put meat scraps in our bin on the night we were finally able to put them out. Both us and our neighbour copped this and ended up with foul smelling bins and about a thousand maggots in them. Think rotting meat in a QLD summer, baking in the sun. We had to pressure clean our bins out and basically soak them with disinfectant to get the stench out. I wouldn't want to do this to someone else, and I was pretty pi$$ed that someone thought it was ok to do it to us in the first place. I figure if it's your rubbish it goes in your bin. I'm even appalled that my in laws go for a drive on Christmas night to dispose of prawn shells etc in a council bin down at the local park, rather than freezing them and waiting til bin day (like everyone else I know). Their reasoning is that the bins are emptied frequently - never mind that this year was public holidays then a weekend, so who knows when their chosen bin was next emptied.

    I don't have a dog and I wouldn't appreciate a bag of dog poop in my bin. Just like I assume a stranger wouldn't like my baby's poo nappy in their bin.

    Seriously? A. gosh people can be a little precious. It would be for 1 week I'm sure you could cope.
    I would far rather that you put your dog poop or whatever rubbish in my bin than on my section. A rubbish bag will be going in it soon enough and then another and they will stink more. It's not like the bin is being half filled with dog **** every week it would be once in a while.
    If I lived next to a park and everyone did it every day or week that would annoy me

    I think it's the laziness, sense if entitlement and crossing boundaries that ****es people off more, not actually that the poo itself will do a lot of harm.?

    People leave empty UDLs, beer bottles and sometimes straight up dog cr@p on our nature strip. That's lazy, self entitled and boundary crossing. Picking up your dog's poo, putting it in a sealed bag and then into the nearest bin? Not so much.

    Yeah I see your point I just think if it was coming from laziness you just wouldn't pick it up at all? I wouldn't be doing it out of entitlement or crossing boundaries i would just be like oh better pick this land mine up oh there is a bin excellent and off i would go ... Different strokes I guess?

    Its funny though, i think there is the people who have never thought of it group, the people who have noticed and it annoys group and not much else in between.

    I honestly never thought about peoples whizzbins that in depth. I doubt anyones doing it because they are self entitled, they prob just dont think much about it, like me! I think i just always saw Mum picking up the rubbish on our walks and popping it in bins on the way etc
