    Default Neighbours from Hell

    I think I must have the worst neighbours you can imagine. They wait until it's dark and throw bags of rubbish into my garden have thrown glass into the rear of the house have damaged my car with a bottle and are so two faced they have the cheek to smile and say hello when I see them. Came to the stage I had to contact council environmental health and police but that was a waste of time and just keeps happening. The guy from the council said I should throw the rubbish back but knowing my luck I will end up in court for doing that so not very good advice. Any suggestions?

    I thought that the council had the power to take action as this is a case of littering. If any of their rubbish included discarded letters etc that had their details(name/address) on it the council has to act on it and impose fines.

    As I can only make suggestions that are legal, all you can do is gather evidence. Some very handy cctv cameras out there these days. Some even have motion sensors and NV. There's the old thing of going thru the rubbish to find stuff with name and address on it. The more evidence you have the better.
    There's alot of illegal dumping around here too, but thank God my car hasn't being vandalised in a couple of years. Great isn't it.

    The problem is in proving it. Whilst I have actually hear their windows and doors closing after the incidents and have tried to record them on camera they are very sneaky and wait until it's pitch black and then start off. It's becoming a real nightmare as I can't get the evidence I need. Have even tried looking through the bags of rubbush for evidence but it's soup veg and potato peelings so no prints etc. I would not mind but I have done nothing at all against them.

    cctv is the only way to tackle that problem, it's an awful situation to be in but if the council isn't willing to help this is your only option

    Like others have said, best thing is CCTV. I have used this site for a lot of stuff and found them very good and reasonably priced, based up north so delivery is usually next day. Get a kit and it's pretty much DIY and not rocket science..

    CCTV cameras

    You should lodge an official complaint in writing. Then, if you get really fed up and resort to dumping the rubbish back in their garden, you have evidence of provocation.
