We like to share were I stay, garbage bins, mail order packages (it's fun like Christmas, a surprise), dirty laundry, family fights (nothing like a non-family member joining a fight to reunite the family), gardens (grass is always greener), insomnia, things like that.

Nah. And I hate when other people use my bin. In my current location it's not a big deal for garbage itself--there are shared bins outside but I don't generate enough garbage to have to use it--I just haul my bag out of my apartment straight to the curb on garbage day.

However, although we have separate recycle bins for each unit, they are kept in a shared location (not enough room in my apartment for the bin), and I'm super-territorial about stuff. Sends me into a rage when others put their stuff in my bin--especially if they put in enough that there's not room for my stuff when I get around to bringing stuff down, or if they put non-recyclables or dirty recyclables there. Gah. I'm gritting my teeth and clenching my fists (as much as possible while typing) just thinking about it.

I'm only that territorial about other humans and them putting stuff in my bin though. Spiders are completely welcome to take up residence in my bin or use it as a vacation spot or travel route.

I keep things in my pockets ideally. If It's urgent then I'll use their bin.

No, too much of my energy will need to be used.

Yes, if there's no public bins around.

I hope the residents would appreciate it, it's better than throwing my rubbish on the ground.

if you meant like throw a bag of rubbish in someone else's bin, nope, I don't do that lol. I think that's kinda rude.

Some people drive with their rubbish bag and throw it in the public bins at the train station I live close to.... I think that's really weird... why dump your rubbish bag in a public bin?? rofl. the station staffs had to lock the bin... and put a sign... "You'll be fined heavily if you throw home rubbish bags in this bin"...


lol... some people are just weird and lack common sense.

No where I live everyone has got their own trash and recycle bins. Typically you don't use another person's bins unless you live in an apartment or something, but the people with apartments have dumpsters for their disposal.
You also are supposed to keep your bins off the sidewalk and in your yard so people don't go digging through them or throwing their trash in your bins,

I live on the main street of my town, and my recycling bins are, by necessity, stored where they are visible to people shopping. As such, it gets filled with people's trash and recyclables. I don't really mind it too much, (the worst are the people who think my brilliant blue stairs are THE place for their engagement photos and other stuff.. FML.), but it does become very bothersome when they max it out and I need to put recyclables in it, or, when they don't differentiate and just toss ALL their trash into it.

On the other hand, I use other people's cans if a public one is't readily available and it's trash night.
