Our neighbors cram their trash in our can

DEAR AMY: We are an older, retired couple living in a townhouse condominium complex. As such we have individual garbage/recycling pick up.

Columnist Amy Dickinson (Bill Hogan/Chicago Tribune) 

We do not generate much garbage or recycling. Our cans rarely fill up more than 50 percent.

We have noticed that our garbage and recycling cans frequently get filled up with other residents’ garbage/recycling to the point where the lids are up, with garbage bags hanging out over the edge.

We do pay for our garbage and, like everyone else in the complex, we buy the smallest can available.
