So last night our garbage was picked up really late. Like 8pm...

I heard the truck arrive, so I peeked out the window. I see the guy take the first can, empty it, and throw it to the ground as hard as he could. He then empties the second can, and flings it at my house and it hits my garage door.

Perplexed, I go outside and ask what the problem was. As it was dark, and he was wearing gloves, I'm not SURE, but I THINK he flipped me off. The truck drove away...he also said something...in guess what language :rolleyes:

So I called the city try to get someone fired. I learned that the contract with this garbage company is up. They had lots of trouble with them.. etc etc... so the will only be back one or two more times.

So I need a booby trap for my garbage pick up next week. I do have an abundance of soiled diapers which could be incorporated....

I'm not gonna ask what you're doing stashing soiled diapers, but it seems like a solid plan

Just get new trash barrels, they're what, 10 bucks?

Ok, fill a hefty bag with the contents of one toner cartridge. Inflate the rest of the way with air and tie it off.

When they go to smash it, POOF black cloud! :evil:

Go to tap plastics and get one of those big 5gal containers of expanding foam. I'm sure you could find a way so that when thrown into the truck or compacted by the truck, the foam would expand to 20+ times it's original volume and overflow out of the truck.

Check that. You should get several containers.

edit: I'm not sure about the laws of disposing of something like that in the trash. So make sure you don't get caught.

Good idea. Put a bunch of soiled diapers into the hands of someone who is already pissed off enough to throw things at your house.


Soiled diaper fights are not cool.

How far was that toss? You might not want to f' with him.

As for the booby trap, get a wolverine and put that in your trash can. When he opens the can, the wolverine will rip his face off.

Superglue a quarter to the sidewalk and point and laugh when they can't pick it up...Or hire a midget to hide inside of the trashcan and pop out when they come to pick up the garbage, I know if a midget flew out of a trashcan at me I would indeed be frightened.

that is the most awesome trap yet. I was thinking an angry family of racoons, but a wolverine would be better.

Just hide in the trash can with a knife.

When he pulls the top off the can, stab him in the face.

i dont think putting some nastyness in a garbage can will deter said garbagemen. Think of what they deal with all day, they are desensitized to foul odors.
If you want a real boobie trap, get (make) some C4. Time delay and trip fuses are easy enough to rig up.

i like the foam idea. just buy a case of the stuff, pack it up in a bag with something sharp that will puncture the cans when they hit the compactor, and stick it in your neighbor's garbage. remember to wipe off the prints too.

If you could freeze the foam and remove the can from around it, you could put a whole bunch of the frozen foam lumps in your garbage just before he's supposed to take it. The timing would have to be good, though.

As it thaws, it will expand, so by the end of their garbage run, they'd have a big truck full of foam.

A plastic spoon, copper wire, a clothes pin and a 9v battery will work perfectly.

Oh no! Not big scary foam :blah:


Is there a tree close to your trash can? Or better a few houses down? Tie some kind of nastiness in a bucket that will topple over onto said dude when he grabs the can?

Put the faom stuff in a bag. Then put the other thing that casues the chemical reaction in another bag. Put this set in a blck trsh bag. Have a few blck trsh bags w/ this stuff. YOu could put needles and/or broken glass around the two innerbags to poke a hole in them.

You could also put sodium in one bag and water in another in black bag w/ broken glass, and put these in a trsh bag. All the trash would explode if the bag doesn't broke before getting in the truck.

:dead: Anything more than a small amount of sodium would also blow up his house along with it... not to mention making sure it stays completely dry while handling it.

Just fill two trash cans with water. Heavy, guaranteed to spill and I'm sure it's not exactly warm in your neck of the woods at 8pm hanging on the back of a truck.
