Q. Can one return from the curb the garbage bins that were collected during Yom Tov? (this is important since in streets where non frum or Gentile neighbors dwell, they are bothered by the apparent disregard of the frum people to the cleanliness and the by-laws of the city thus creating a Chilul Hashem)
A. Re- question 2613 regarding garbage bins with chometz in them, it is permitted to place them by the curb outside the homeowners property, before the time when the chometz prohibition begins (this year (2020) on Wednesday). Even if they are emptied on Thursday (first day of Pesach), it is permitted, since the chometz is off one’s property and not inside one’s utensil.
Since the bins themselves are after all a utensil, and its use is permitted on Shabbos and Yom Tov, the reason they may be muktza may be due to the fact that they became a “bosis” or a base and support to the prohibited chometz on it at the beginning of Yom Tov.
However, Poskim disagree whether the above also applies to an object that was already destined to be removed during Shabbos or Yom Tov, as is in our case (See Shulchan Aruch O.H. 309: 4 and Mishna Berura).
Therefore. Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that they may be moved from the curb when needed. (Or one may just push them with his body, if one desires to be stringent).
