I received this text from my neighbor this morning. I have owned my house for 7 years and think my neighbor should mind her own business.

We are friendly, exchange gifts on the holidays, etc, but this takes it a step too far.
Text that I received at 8am: Tip of the day from your 'green police' neighbor- please please don't put trash in the recycle bin! Junky old furniture def not recyclable and contaminants make it hard 4 city crews. They just may not pick up your can at all, but it looks really bad on street. If u need a bigger tarsh can u can order one, or figure out how to reduce your waste. Thx!"
What is an appropriate response? I had a wood chair in the bin and didn't know that was a problem. I don't want her poking around in my trash and my business.
