Sounds a des res and no mistake.
Seriously, can you and your decent neighbours not complain to the council en masse about how they are making life hell?
Cops just tend to prefer an easy collar (we had some anti-social behaviour round here years ago and they really couldn't give a toss, they just sent round a
plastic plod Police Community Support Offier to talk to the kids that were causing the problems along with their scummy parents which did wonders, errr I mean bugger all.
They sound charming. The sort of people who will always be around as well so no chance to do anything to their bins (which would of course be childish but deeply satisfying). Never had any problem neighbours in that age range...yet.
I like your idea of taking their bin to London and @slarti has a good suggestion that would probably see you in trouble because that’s how these things go it would seem. It’s only when things come to a head and the good neighbours get fed up with their complaints being ignored by police, councils etc and do something that somebody gets in the **bleep**, and it’s not usually the problem neighbours.
Locking the bins to something wouldn’t help unless you were about on bin day because they’d just wait until you weren’t there’s such is the hollow petty existence of such people. Maybe look up Colin Furze and see if he ll help? Random I know but he’s made flame throwers, 60mph mobility scooters and RC wheelie bins!
Id be tempted to go for a giant boxing glove on a spring type affair. Your CCTV footage would get you £250 on Youve Been Framed for sure!
The Daily Mail Here is a video of the bin in action. I can't help but think that Colin Furze has perhaps too much time on his hands.
