Neighbors Tossing Garbage onto my yard

Hi everyone,

I've noticed with all the wind that there has been a lot of recycling bins and compost bins flying around the neighborhood the past few weeks... and that led to a huge mess in the area...

Recently I noticed there has continuously been bins and garbage appearing on my front yard and thought it was the wind... however when I checked the security camera it turns out my neighbors moved all the garbage that landed on their property and threw it onto mine instead.

I understand that space is limited as I live in an area where there is a back laneway for parking, so most my neighbors do not have yards.... but still disappointed that they would do this.

You have it on camera, send them the video and kindly ask them to pick up their mess and all will be forgotten. Heck, you can even tell them we all try to pull a fast one once in a while, it just didn't work out this time, perhaps try going the other way. :)

Tried, no one answered the door. Was thinking of leaving a note with a screenshot from the camera, but maybe thought that was a bit too aggressive?

Leave them a screen capture on their door with a note saying it's not appreciated
I'd rather be outdoors camping, kayaking, and mountain biking ...

Leave a note that says Respect thy neighbour.
