Well -- this is NOT the first time I had to drag up the trash in my backyard due to idiots NOT tying up their trash bags and/OR close down the Trash Bins. Over the years, I have collected such stuff as: # Credit reports from credit card companies (Surprised some don't even SHRED their financial reports # Grade Reports for some of their kids (Interesting that some of the kids grades were rather very poor and parent's throwing it in trash without shredding it) # Boxes from Amazon (They didn't even bother to break it down to put in a secure bin or other area.) # Even a box from a sex shop store- I'll spare you guys the details that were on the box # Pharmacy receipts attached to bag *(Names were on the receipts along with the kind of medicine -- Note: With HIPAA, why aren't you shredding your stuff so you don't want anyone to know your medical history....well, now I know what the person's medical history is on the receipt) # Milk Plastic Jugs # Newspapers # Letters # School homework papers # Work papers # Plastic bags from various grocery stores (I have a couple that got stuck in my trees VERY high up and I cannot get them down--not even with a VERY tall ladder). So...for those that are worried about the SENSITIVE stuff that arrived in my backyard--since they landed on my property, I have the right to look at them before I throw them in the trash yet again UNSHREDDED. Its YOUR responsibility to shred/destroy/bag up this stuff before it gets OUT. If you value your privacy, then get hopping and buy a shredder. If you don't like your neighbors reading/learning about your medical / school history or other stuff like that, then shred the crap. Lastly, when are people going to learn how to bag/breakdown boxes / Secure your trash?? HOA-- Can you guys start patrolling neighborhoods and start insisting on people not OVERFLOWING their trash bins as I cannot count how many times the trash lids are partially open because people overpack their trash bins enabling the winds to blow the trash around and about? Also when are you guys going to start requiring people to break down the boxes and put them in the recycling bins? Leaving them around and about the bins only to have them blow into people's backyards is just annoying AND idiotic. My last neighborhood ten years ago had a very strict rule about how trash was to be stored at the curb. They regularly fined neighbors for violating the trash rules and it really made a difference because then people didn't have to clean up their backyards for trash. Can the HOA consider this because I and Im sure others are getting tired of having to clean up after others' idiotic actions.
