Sometimes he takes it or sometimes he puts rubbish in mine. I don't mind someone passing by using my bin to throw small litter but this guy puts his household waste and sometimes garden waste

Can I report him for theft or something even though he returns it?

Also, where do you keep your bin which makes it so easy to take?

Just take his rubbish out and give it him back.

Not sure how that will stop a neighbour from taking people's bins, filling them and putting them back. The only difference will be that the bins that they take, fill up and put back will have numbers on them.

Add some Nuttella on the Handles or something sticky ... know it will be a pain for you for a week or two I'm sure you can wipe it away or wear some gloves but I'm sure that will stop him from doing it in the future and he can move on to other more glamorous looking bins in the future:)

Leave a note on it in his language.

"Can I report him for theft?"

Modern Britain, right there.
Bravo.

The bin is your responsibility for what waste goes into it as such you should contact both the local council and waste management (that empties your bin) and inform them. If needed get contact names and follow up with a letter seeking action.
If nothing is resolved within say 4 weeks follow up again but informing them you will contact the local press (usually gets them off their bottoms) and your local councillor - maybe also contact your local PCSO as it could be classed as fly tipping.

He hasn't got a bin. Or a grass one

If he hasn't got a bin be a good neighbour and phone the council and get him a bin. Chances are if he has a bin of his own he will use it.

As mentioned he may not know that they are not shared bins. Putting the number on his bin may corelate that that is the bin for him to use.

But as it transpires somebody already stole his bin so he doesn't have one of his own. So what comes around goes around.

It is called fly tipping & is illegal. Contact your council or just booby trap your bin next time he goes to take it oO

Take the rubbish out and stick it through his letter box X)

It's not fly tipping. It's using a council provided bin. He is not using more than one bin so has paid for the service through his council tax. He may well claim the bin is his bin and the OP keeps taking it. At the end of the day it's not the OP's bin it's the council's bin that you have permission to use.

Absolute garbage! (pardon the pun) If he uses anyone else's bin other than the one he is allocated by the council it is fly tipping... plain & simple! You have no permission to use anyone else's bin without their agreement. It is fly tipping, it is the law & the council can & will enforce it.

It's will be sorted anyway. They are a bin missing. When it gets replaced, problem solved.

The issue is is where the other bin has gone!

No, Germany too. The council inspectors there will actually fine you if they find miss sorted rubbish in your bins. Also one quite often pays for each individual collection, rather than some sort of flat fee.

What... it is the OP's bin he is knowingly stealing & fly tipping in. "They" are not missing a bin the guy is missing a bin & stealing his neighbour's. You own your bin in this country even though it is charged for on a collection basis. They have got rid of the brown bin collection service in our area but they still make the householder responsible for housing the bin even if they don't pay for the collection service. No one has the right to take your property or to empty their waste into your bins. Full stop.

BEFORE YOU START BAWLING ABOUT THEFT. Theft is only theft if he doesn't intend to give you it back which isn't the case. He knows what he is doing and does it regardless. Lock it with a lock and he can't use it either that or FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT!

"theft is the taking of another person's property without that person's permission or consent with the intent to deprive the rightful owner of it" just because he returns it does not mean that he did not unlawfully take possession of it.
I do agree tho... perhaps the guy is only taking it because he knows the OP is not going to stand up to him.

How do we know it is indeed the OP's bin? We only have their word for it.

If it's "your" brown bin and you don't want it chop it up and put it in your normal bin. I'm not sure what country you live in but here where I live the bins are owned by the council, it says so on the bin. If I decided I didn't want my garden waste bin ( because I had a compost heap) I can phone them to collect it.

Settle down mate he's taken others bins too not just mine.

Got reflective door numbers on em too to help when they're put out in the evening.

Having final word with him tomorrow.

I would call up for him to have a bin, but it costs around £20 for a bin. I feel that's the reason for him taking ours

put him in it if he does it again!
#34
As he doesn't speak English have you tried pointing and shouting?
#35
Take video of him taking your bin and show it to the Council/Police.. You are responsible for the contents of
your bin and so could be fined £1000 (around here) for items that should not be there.

Get it sorted.
#36
Ask him again not to use your bin. Write a letter to him as he will be able to read better than he speaks english, else he will ask someone to translate it for him.

Say that if he continues to use your bin, you will report the issue to the council. Give him website links and phone numbers of the council and information on how he can get his own bin.

I hate other people using my bins.

The cheek trying to charge you £20 for a bin. It's their bin that you pay to use. It was most likely lost after the council had taken possession of it by it either going in the back of the lorry or being left out on the street after it has been emptied.

Our bin is usually left over 20m from our house (I live at the end of a cul de sac where the road doesn't extend as far as our house) . If I put it out on a Monday morning if I'm working away all week it is still there on a Friday evening when I get home. Lots of opportunity for it to go missing through no fault of my own. If it did go missing I certainly wouldn't be paying for a new one.

Has he never had a bin (since moving in) or has it recently gone missing? Either way probably best give the council a quick call to let then know. Good Luck with it all. :)
