A new neighbour has moved in next door and has taken your main rubbish bin.
Write a letter to your new neighbour requesting that they return the item. In the letter:
– Explain that new bins must be sourced from the local council
– Request that the person returns your bin immediately
– Inform the person of what further actions you will take should they not return your bin
Dear new neighbour,
First of all, welcome to the neighbourhood.
I live at number 10, next door to you, and I’m writing to you because I saw you take my bin into your garden on the day you moved in. I’m sure you were convinced that it must have been yours, but I had simply left it outside for collection. If your bin is missing, you should call the council and have them deliver a new one.
I cannot, however, live without a bin. I already have a bag in my kitchen waiting to be taken out, and so I’m forced to request that you return my bin immediately. Feel free to leave any rubbish it already contains, but if you don’t return the bin within 48 hours, I will feel it necessary to involve the council.
I hope we can resolve this conflict as quickly as possible, as I’m sure we’d make great neighbours otherwise.
Your new neighbour,
