Talk to your insurance agent or if you have a lawyer talk to them.
Your laws may not say that he is the one responsible.
The responsibility could be the building owner's (since the bins are attached) or it could simply be an "act of a god" that comprehensive pays for.

YOU SHOULD DO THIS!!! SERIOUSLY! Include the landlord too. That will get their attention.

I don't play well with others and I'm fully aware of this so by all means don't do this but it would be like me to take a ball bat, tire iron, etc. and bash his front fender in then say "hehe, you have a little dent now too!"

To finish the story, his wife just came and looked at my car when she got home from work and said they would have it fixed. She is very mad at me for calling the police because "she considered me to be her friend and friends don't do that to friends", but a month ago when her husband put his garbage pail on top of my car and I complained to her, she said I was not to talk to her about him again and if I had a problem I should do what I had to do to resolve it myself and not involve her. I am so tired of this sh*t. I want so badly to move away from all of this. I would love to move far away into the country, but we can't afford to move.

I just got screamed at because I did what she told me to do and when I told her that she said again "friends don't do that to friends".

I give up!

She should be screaming at her idiotic husband, not you!

Hang in there!

Gee, and she married him eh? I wonder how that courtship went

I don't like confronting people either but then going elsewhere can cause trouble too. It shouldn't though - with people like that you can never do the right thing because they have ZERO common sense. If they did, you wouldn't be put upon like this.
Hope it all works out...if you are lucky, THEY will move!

The police should have taken a report. It would have made everything easier. Were there any witnesses?

Sometimes people are just plain stupid - that's all there is to it.
My parents have lived in the same house now for 20 yrs and 12 of those with the same dog. Suddenly a few years ago a neighbor 3 houses up the street started dumping shovels full of dog poop in their driveway. When asked "why" he said b/c our dog comes up there and poops in his yard every morning. Our dog is never out without one of my parents and he never wanders further than the next door neighbor and my father is always behind him with the shovel - even when he poops in our yard so I am 100% positive he has never so much as peed in this mans yard. The real question though is how did he "know" our dog's poop from that of his 2 dogs?
So again I say - Some people are just stupid - They cannot get out of their own way and there is nothing you can do about it.
I hope they follow through and fix the car. Just as a precaution I would take pictures of your damage and where the recycling bins are in relation to your car.

I am the only witness. I was sitting right there when he did this. He kind of chuckled and said "you have a little ding in your car". Later, when I would not respond to him at all he said "oh, sorry about that Christine", but not a word was said about having the car fixed. As a matter of fact, he spent the morning singing at the top of his lungs, AFTER damaging my car.

Here's the picture I took today. You can clearly see two dents and a lot of chipped paint. This was NOT there the day before.

His laughing about it (and I don't care if it was to cover nervousness) would have made me mad enough to spit.

This couple needs to pay for your car to be fixed. I suppose that if you went to your insurance company your rate would go up?

That's why I love Farmers. Your rate doesn't go up if it wasn't your fault.

I'm SO SORRY you have to go through this!
