Old fencing dumped in woods

Our neighbours have recently had new fencing installed. Instead of removing the old fence panels from the premises, the installer has just dumped them in the woods right behind our gardens. They are not "bad" neighbours, and I know they will ask me what I think of their new fence (which looks lovely, by the way!) Should I tell them that, whilst the fence is very nice, I disapprove of the dumping of the old panels in the woods, or just pretend that I don't realise that is what has been done and fume internally? It really bothers me because I believe this is akin to "fly-tipping" and shouldn't have happened.

Do you think your neighbour did that himself, to tidy things up?

Yes, Calendargirl. I'm pretty sure it was the neighbour who tidied it away so we couldn't see it anymore. I'm happy with that but hope he gets rid of it properly when/if we get back to normal with the local refuse centres opening again.

His motto was obviously ‘Out of sight, out of mind’!
