    Yes, I know I could just keep the bin in the garage but it’s the principle.

    I was going to suggest keeping yourself in the bin….ready to pounce!

    I found a Tesco receipt with a ClubCard number in one of the bags. Any way of identifying the culprit?

    Not really. Unless you can see the number on the suspects cards to match it.

    Keep a honey badger in your bin? Or a sheet of a4 paper with “I know who you are and I will kill you” on the inside of the lid.

    Kill their cat and put it in your bin

    Little sign on the inside of the bin lid which says ‘Smile! You’re on camera.’

    Either that or just drop ’em and curl one out on his drive.
    It’s the only language these people understand.

    Frenzied hammer attack?

    Take their bags out of your bin and put them next to their bin.

    Don’t know who it is… can take a good guess but suspect emptying the bags over the wrong garden is not going to go down well.

    Get hold of a prosthetic hand and put it sticking out of a large bin bag in the bottom of the bin and smear sound some strawberry jam. Then see which neighbour calls the police.

    I’d fit an Alarm mine to my bin to deter fly tippers http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Alarm-mine-for-detering-intruders-/350622715551?pt=UK_SportingGoods_Hunting_ShootingSports_ET&hash=item51a2be0e9f

    They’ll need clean pants if they ever go near your bin again 8)

    I’m away most of the week. One of my neighbours has started taking advantage of this by dumping their rubbish in my wheely bin. They’re only emptied once a fortnight so it’s a complete pain in the arse to come home and discover I’ve got to stack my bags in the garage for the next couple of weeks.

    I found a Tesco receipt with a ClubCard number in one of the bags. Any way of identifying the culprit?

    Yes, I know I could just keep the bin in the garage but it’s the principle.

    Empty contents of bin(s) over their drive/garden then replace with your own.

    Feeling Grouchy OP?

    As above – drill hole in lid and body of bin. Fit small padlock (with chain if necessary).

    That said, our council advise us to use neighbours’ bins if there’s not enough room in our own.

    Wow, 14 replies and no-ones suggested a passive aggressive note taped to the bin lid 😯

    Talk to the person you think it is, even if they deny it they’ll stop if it is them, that way you’ll know and if it continues speak to other neighbours until it stops!

    I’ve done it before but only late on the night before collection. Our biggest problem is the idiot bin men who just launch it back anywhere on the pavement, which once resulted in me backing my bin into the main road as the tool had hid it right behind my van!

    Loads of party poppers taped to the inside of the bin, with the strings taped to the lid…

    I like the last one but seriously move the bin or put a small padlock on it. You’re not going to win with your neighbour, if they’re filling your bin they must know it’ll be causing you problems. If they’re that selfish they’r elikely to escalate it if you get confrontational.

    Just a thought, where is your bin? On your property or in a public place?

    Dummy CCTV cameras start at around £7 or use a GoPro on time lapse if you have one.

    If you’re away most of the week, how are you managing to produce enough waste to fill your bins..?
    I surmise that you are bad for the environment and your mystery bin filler is staging an act of protest..

    they were talking about RFIDing bins and then charging by weight of waste aroudn our way. Wait until this happens and fill your neighbours bins with water the night before each collection.

    For the passive aggressive people out there, I understand its the fashion nowadays to change your wireless network ID to “stop putting your shit in my bin ya bastids”

    To whomever suggested that it’s my own fault because I partly fill the bin with rubbish – these are baby-sized bins which only hold three bags. The council won’t empty them if the lid isn’t completely flush. It’s actually fine if you use the giant recycling bin as well.

    I don’t care if someone uses the remaining space once it’s out for collection. The other problem is that they fill it with recyclable material (paper, glass, food, milk bottles etc) which goes far more towards pissing me off.

    That’s why I went through the rubbish since I had to sort it for them, and how I found the receipt.

    Paint a photorealistic impression of the gates of hell inside your bin. Then when the culprit looks inside the fear of being sucked into the ‘portal’ should put them off.

    Simple, lock the bin in the garage for a couple of weeks.

    Failing that paint a photorealistic picture of Jimmy Saville beckoning your neighbour to his magic chair, problem solved.
