Caught someone using my garbage can Login/Join

I hate people.
I hopped in Redneck Truck™ to go retrieve my empty garbage can 1/4 mile down my driveway.
I topped the hill on my driveway to see a champagne Chevy S10 make this U turn into my driveway and U turn up to my empty garbage can.
Hillbilly trash exits the truck, reached in back and grabs 2 bags of trash and proceeds to open my can to drop it in.
I punch Redneck Truck™ to the floor spitting gravel and zoom up to the back of his truck.
I lean out my half open door and yell over the hood "You are NOT about to put your trash in my FUCKING can!" Mad
He looks up in surprise and just say sorry, tosses the bags back in his truck and speeds off.

I've found trash in my cans before and I believe this trash was the culprit.
Damn I hate people.

Too goddammed lazy to drive to the land fill and pay to drop off or too sorry to pay for trash pick up.

Silly me. I was sitting here thinking, "It could be worse... Bubba could have just emptied his bags at the end of SC's driveway. At night."

Yeah that's pretty bad.... I've been walking around on trash day and had a bottle or something in my hand and thrown it away in someone else's trash can that's on the street because it's trash day (I don't make a habit of this either but it's happened), but I can't imagine taking bags of trash to someone else's house and just throwing it away in their can....

Last year I was returning with a load of firewood with the splitter in tow to find a dirtbag biker with someone on the back dumping their trash in my driveway.
I blocked him the best I could but he cut through the ditch.
But at least it was real muddy and slung mud all over his passenger.

Ask me about the damn biker tourists.

The office building we had had 3 dumpsters which had to be locked at all times to keep dirtballs from loading them up. They are billed by weight, and how often they are emptied.




Luckily, I have enough willpower to control the driving ambition that rages within me.

When you had the votes, we did things your way. Now, we have the votes and you will be doing things our way. This lesson in political reality from Lyndon B. Johnson

"Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our ability to control our own destiny atrophies. The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible." - Justice Janice Rogers Brown

In our area, we pay Our Fair City a fixed amount for trash pickup. It's a fixed rate, not dependent on weight or volume or anything, just a fixed fee that is a line item on our water bill. The city Utility Department handles both water / sewer and trash pickup.

So, knowing that it will not cost anything extra, I frequently put my bagged trash right next to the neighbor's, figuring that will make just a little bit less work for the guys on the trash truck. One-stop shopping. Nobody was harmed.

That is nothing. The illegals custom is to throw their garbage along the road, in the woods or in your field. I have even had them take a crap in my field when working at an adjacent lot.

When they were building houses near the rear of my lot, I would find bags of garbage and beer cans in the field. I would go through each bag looking for a receipt or mail that would determine to whom it belonged. Never had any luck.

So one day I am in the field and hear a vehicle stop. I could see someone throwing several bags over the fence and then drive off. So I walked down the road which is a dead end and could see the pickup where they were building a new house. I looked up the owner of the lot and gave him a call and told him about the garbage dumping. The dumping stopped for a while but you still find occasional trash dumped, beer cans, and sometimes brush.

we have a standing agreement between us and our neighbor across the street to dump garbage in the other's can if needed and there's space.

This is why my company has dumpsters with wheels and they are inside unless the garbage truck is there to empty...

Next time let him do it.

Then go through the trash and find a document with his name/address on it.

Place document at top of trash pile in bag.

Dump trash at local PD doorstep.

That's how it is in most cities, at least for residential trash service.

For those members that might be confused about why this would be a big deal, city trash service and rural trash service are very different animals.

In the city, typically everyone (or almost everyone) has residential trash service that's either performed by the city or contracted by the city, and each home pays a fixed monthly rate as part of their utility bills. Most areas it's not optional. So it's usually not a big deal if that bit of trash goes in your can or your neighbor's can (within reason). It's all the same to everyone.

But in rural areas, a resident will usually have to find and pay a private trash service for trash pickup. The cost of the service is usually higher than city trash rates, and is also often variably dependent on weight/volume/frequency. This means that lots of rural folks choose not to pay for trash service, for various reasons. The more conscientious ones without trash service recycle what they can and burn the rest in burn piles or burn barrels. The assholes take their trash to someone else's trash can or dumpster, as in the OP's case, which may end up costing the owner of the can/dumpster more money. The dirtbags just dump it somewhere on their own property, effective turning a portion of their land into an unlicensed landfill. And the real shitheads dump it somewhere out in the boonies on someone else's land, or on the side of the road.

And when the PD checks their camera footage, who are they going to see driving up and dumping trash on their doorstep? Then when they come knocking on your door to inquire about this, what's your response going to be? "Well... he did it to me first?"

If you want to notify law enforcement about the situation, that's definitely not the way to go about it.

The last time we had a new roof, the roofing company had a dumpster delivered to our driveway a couple days before the work started.

A BUNCH of trash had been deposited in the dumpster before the worker guys even arrived to start stripping the old shingles.
The dumpsters at Our Little Airport, placed by the Owners Association, with service paid for by association members' dues, used to be on the entrance road. They would fill up quickly with trash being deposited by non-airport users.

The dumpsters were relocated to an obscure location on an interior taxiway, where they were not visible to casual observers. The amount of trash from outsiders is now almost zero.

Could be worse. I have new neighbors, that, instead of taking their trash to town, or getting trash service of their own, have resorted to throwing their trash in a hole in their backyard. Said hole is full. Windiest county in the state. Care to guess where the trash ends up? Yep, everywhere Roll Eyes.

Glad you caught the guy in the act SC. Using others' trash cans is akin to stealing, to me.

The other day I was sewing up a guys leg in the ER and we got to talking. He’s a contractor who builds housing development. Besides stolen tools his number one revenue loss he was was people driving. To the site and loading up his dumpsters with furniture, dead animals, etc... he said some weekends they will fill 2-3 dumpsters with crap and he has to pay to have it hauled away. Price of doing business I guess.
