If she breaks yours, talk to her parents and politely request that they replace them, or that they can meet you in small claims court, since they are responsible for her actions and the consequences they have until she is an adult.
You would be incorrect, Druu. Until the age of majority, parents are responsible for their children's actions, barring specific circumstances. This means that if a child damages someone's property, the parents can be taken to civil court for monetary compensation, and said parents could also be held accountable for any crimes that the child commits in a court of law. The neighbors know that their child is behaving this way and that damage has resulted from it. As the behavior has not been corrected, anyone who has their bins damaged by the child and can provide evidence can in fact take the parents to civil court in order to get either replacement bins or the money for them.
