It is a very small world indeed!
Maybe a notice on your bin about dog poo would do the trick, with something along the lines of "We know who you are!"

That was my initial thought Tim, but NNN and I decided long ago that that would only encourage/alienate all and sundry.

Mr BW does the bins most of the time and he claims not to notice the dog poo bags. I make no comment about that, except to say that I have long suspected that if one of my spells went wrong one day, and my hair turned blue, it would take him a week to notice ;)

Not being a dog owner, I'm a bit confused. Are you not allowed to put bags of dog poo in general rubbish bins.

As a former dog owner I never thought of dumping my dogs shite in someone else’s bin. Just not done.

A sign stating cctv observing you might help and a promise to return any other persons trash to them could put a stop to it. Dog owners tend to be creatures of habit so identifying times of walks and a bucket of suitably malodorous substances to hoick over them might also help!

I have learnt from painful experience to listen to my gut instincts and avoid those who aren’t attuned to me.

I don't think it would bother me, as long as it went in the general bin. But I just put it out on a Thursday to be picked up early Friday morning, so it would be an occasional transgression at worst. There are dog poo bins all round the village anyway. I'd rather the poo went in my bin than be left on the verge or a bag dangled from a branch.
