A: In Alabama, laws regarding trash disposal and property boundaries can vary depending on local ordinances and regulations. Generally, it's considered respectful to dispose of your own trash in your own bin and to keep your bins on your own property. If someone is consistently using your bin for their trash without your permission or placing their bin on your property, it could potentially be a violation of property rights or local regulations.
