WTF? My yard trimming cart was stolen last night!

What do thieves/hobos/lowlives steal these things for? Anyone had this happen to them?

i see the recycling guys sometimes just taking the bags with them (and not replacing them as they do from time to time) so that's probably why you're missing bags


as for your cart probably some teens walked by and figured they'd have some fun with it

That would be understandable if it was indeed the case for both bags. But It's only ever the yellow ones.

Funny, my garbage bin was missing after it got emptied this week. It was left sitting outside the next day. I guess the neighbor took it in the garage thinking it was his.

Mine dissapeared awhile back too... gave the city a call and they brought one to me. I assumed they found it somewhere and identified it with the numbers on the bin

If your garbage bin disappeared on pickup day. There's a likelihood it fell into the garbage truck while they were dumping it. City's like vancouver and burnaby the truck picks up the container and sometimes the bin slips and falls in with the rest of the garbage.

why lol, they're free lol

i used to be a recyling/garbage man, the majority of the time if your garbage bin goes missing, its your neighbour who took it in by mistake...no big deal, city will bring you a new one.

as for your recycling box, those guys are in a hustle to get their route done on time, so they sometimes tend to forget to throw the bag back into the bin before chucking it into your driveway. if your bin is damaged...usually the drivers keep a few bins and bags on their trucks, so if you see him next week, ask him, if he doesnt, the bins and bags are free, pick them up at your local recycling depot.

ive personally never seen that happen before :s the only time ive seen a garbage man throw a bin in the truck is if hes turning into an alley way and the bin is too close to the corner and he clips it while turning and damages it. you'd be surprised how tight those arms grab those bins, its very unlikely that it would slip out.
