It’s very tempting to put your bin out the night before bin collection day. We are all aware that these bins get nightly visitations and while the individuals plundering your waste might not be scanning your premises, there are unscrupulous individuals who use this nocturnal pillaging as a cover to take notes about your property as they wander around the neighbourhood. Be vigilant. Put your bin out the morning of the day it’s to be collected or emptied. If you are aware of neighbours who place their bin out the night before please inform your neighbourhood watch. They will approach the resident with finesses and kindly explain the importance of the issue and request their cooperation.
