So instead of "can't pay, we'll take it away", it was a case of "can't pay, we'll leave it with you".......

Awesome clip, well done to the lads

quality.
wish we'd had mobile phones back in the day, a builder mate of mine pulled a dormer extension off a house in Bradford after they didn't pay.

BEST BIT is the fact it went back in her garden, if they had dumped it and just drove off she would have shrugged her scummy shoulders and left the neighbours to live with the mess. I'm seriously emailing them now, I want bonuses all round, I want a week off for each bloke at Christmas and a 5% share in the company!

Builders get prosecuted for criminal damage for doing that.

Only if they don't own what they destroy, you no pay you no own! Although would be interesting to see about fly tipping if they left it there.

nice

Not true mate. Its considered criminal damage regardless of payment. Criminal law is criminal law. Civil law is for money disputes.

Where's criminal damage? The rubbish belong to her. The skip belongs to them. They're only retrieving their property in the state that they delivered it in and leaving her with her rubbish.

You can't criminally damage your own property or possessions. I wish I had been there to see it.

Haha I said that to my mate after he got a £900 pound court fine for kicking his own door in after a drunk night out the police nicked him for drunk and disorderly he had court two weeks later and got a £900 fine I couldn't stop laughing you got fined for kicking your own front door in. I said did you have to pay the fine to yourself for breaking your own door he just laughed and said no it's court costs.

You are wrong in every way.

Got to say it's also infuriating when you pay to hire a skip and other people see it as a free tip/chance for them to dump their rubbish. It only takes a handful of people who think 'it's only a few bits & pieces - they won't even notice etc..' before you know it, it's half full oO

My neighbour took offence that I REMOVED 3 railway sleepers from his skip, effectively making more room for him. Odd fellow.

I'm fortunate enough to be a homeowner and live in a really nice area, feel free to Google Penarth, Vale of Glamorgan (it was listed this year, or last in The Sunday Times top 10 places to live in the UK) My sister on the other hand lives in a rented council house on (according to the media in past years) one of the worst council estates/areas in Cardiff. Nobody in their streets would even think of dumping their rubbish in someone's skip - they at least knock the door to ask first, because they're always helping each other out, they have a real community vibe.. IMO money, where you live etc. can't buy decency or manners. So I don't see how living in a 'rough' area as you put it, or a nice one is relevant to people dumping rubbish into a skip they've not paid for oO

Gosh, you really are wonder woman, lol

And your poor sister

I'm only kidding, but lids on skips help to stop having eg asbestos or plasterboard dumped in your skip, I got fined £200 for a bit of plasterboard once

Nothing Wonder about me. We bought our house 16 years ago (it's just an average 3/4 bed Victorian Terrace) and even back then it was a combination of right place at the right time, and a bit of luck to be able to buy it. We struggled and worked hard to raise the deposit etc. and all these years later we still have lots of work that needs doing. There's no way we could afford to buy here now i.e the house prices are ridiculous in this area, so we're surrounded by people who seem to have money & we don't really have any spare tbh.

You should be rubbing your hands together then, you struck lucky, your sister must feel a bit peed off though?

Yeah we've done ok, but like thousands of others, the needs of the family over the years have far outgrown the size of our house. We can't afford to move and get something bigger because of the huge rise in house prices in our area, but this obviously applies to people all over the UK, whether you own or rent. With regard to my sister (even though we're really close), it's possible. Although if I'm honest, it's myself that's probably more peed...families eh? Sorry OP if I've made the skip thread go off topic btw

most of it goes in landfill!, they can only get recycle companys to take a tiny fraction of our waste_ thats all they can process, the rest nearly 99% still goes to lanfill, its a charade nothing more. it doesnt even get recycled into what it used to be, its repurposed, shredded up into flakes, which can be used to create fibres for the textile industry, used in the filling for sleeping bags and duvets, as loft insulation and even in fleeces, hats and business suits!

Lol. It's ok, someone on here was advertising an old empty cardboard box not to long ago. Might go for that instead.

(neighbour had thrown our 3 railway sleepers. £40 a piece and ideal for garden borders)
