One of our neighbours (about 50 meters away) has dumped a load of there rubbish in our wheelie bin on Sunday Night or Early Monday morning. But our wheelie bin was not emptied on Monday because the wife forgot to pay the refuge bill, (wooops).

So today the wife was rummaging around the wheelie bin to find out some clues on where the extra rubbish came from. She hit gold, name, address, invoices, letters etc.

So now we 95% sure we know the source of the rubbish. What practical joke will you do to get back at your neighbours but at the same time not being vindictive?

Some how I would like to return all there rubbish back to them but I don't want to be "Neighbours at war" and have some sort of awkward hostility.

I would do nothing unless it happens again and is becoming a problem. If your bin had been emptied like they presumed it would, the rubbish would be gone and it would have cost you nothing.

Sure, people should pay for their own rubbish disposal, but is it really that big a deal?

And as far as fitting in this weeks rubbish goes, stomp it down and be done with it.

Laugh at the perfect storm, tell them jokingly how funny the coincidence was, and then go and buy a council bag. If they are unfriendly then i would keep hoping they left the neighbourhood!

I was think of leaving a council bag in their post box in about a weeks time. Might confuse them, but at my cost. Hummm.

Check your bin each collection day and if you find it is a regular thing then invoice them - and whack on penalty payments for good measure laughing

It is a service, you are paying for that service, they shouldn't be freeloading.

If it was a one off then all good and well - but I suspect it wasn't.

eta - At the very, very least they should be checking if it is OK with you to do it, especially if it is a regular occurance.

This happened to me but they put the rubbish in the recycle bin so it was not emptied, Found loads of evidence including bills and even boarding passes and hand written notes

They won't be doing that again

I might take a photo of the rubbish and print "Lost and Found" posters, something on the lines of:

<DRAFT>

"Lost Rubbish Found!"

[INSERT PHOTO HERE]

"Have you lost your rubbish in the recent bad weather?
 Rubbish found on Monday in red wheelie bin. Lucky it
 was not collected by the refuge collection team. If you
 know who's rubbish it is, please tell the don't do it. It's
 practically steeling. etc etc."

</DRAFT>
