I do feel a bit of empathy towards those who put their bins on the street, particularly where there isn’t a lot of room on the property AND considering there seems to be more and more bins per household every few years.
I had a similar issue in my last house. There was a small amount of space between the pavement and my house I and my upstairs neighbours were expected to keep our bins. Which meant I had bins right next to windows which during the warm weather was not an ideal location especially if anything got smelly or attracted flies.
There’s a little more room in this picture but not much.
