Is using Someone Else's Bin illegal.

Is Using Someone Else's Bin Illegal.

The question was asked on Moneysavingexpert.com , with one user pondering: "Bins are out, yours is full, several doors up the road theirs is out but empty, is there any offence by putting your excess rubbish in their bin when on the pavement ?

"Risk of a whack on the nose from a belligerent neighbour I realise, but only interested in in the legalities of the hypothetical situation."

The law isn't exactly black and white.

Sure, it may be morally wrong - but is there anything actually in the LAW which makes it outright illegal?

Put simply, it's a form of anti-social behaviour, and regularly referred to in the waste trade as "bin stuffing."

“The phantom bin stuffers are out there, just as everybody predicted,” says BusinessWaste.co.uk Waste Management Director Mark Hall.

“They’re the same as fly-tippers – heaping their waste on others because they’re too lazy or too tight-fisted to deal with it themselves.”
