We live on the Sandon rd with an access Rd at the rear for Oxford Gardens back gardens/access.
We went to cut the shrubs at the back of our fence as the bramble needs cutting back every year. It seems the man at the back of us had been n dumping all his fallen apples at our fence and also a few along our neighbours. Now im not meaning a few. But literally hundreds of the buggers so the smell is incredible & which now have been half eaten. (the apple tree is in his garden and not falling on the access rd) there are piled up in heaps.
Do i ignore get rid of them ourselves.. ( why should we clean up his mess)
Do i knock on his door (hes not a friendly person) telling him the game is up
Or scoop them on his now very tidy patch.
Thoughts?

The Apple Dumping Murders

Just elaborate with the script a bit, there’s plenty of material on this site

I could murder some apple dumplings actually

Can you legally dump them because doesn't he still own them even if he has dumped them himself?

I would either put a note through his door (if you don't want to face him) asking him to remove them as they seem to have "dropped" into your property or dump them back where they came from.

I was reading today (on a totally random news feed item) that if a neighbours fruit lands in your garden you are supposed to hand it back to them. But if you throw it back over into their garden it is classed as fly tipping and you can get get fined for it.......
