Oh yeah, and make sure to put your address on the lids too. Not just to keep her from boosting them, but to insure they get returned if they blow away on a windy day. I don't know how many garbage cans I had that became useless because the lid blew away after the trash was picked up.
Since you said that you have been civil with her at other times..., ask her if she can help you with something, when she says yes, walk her to the garbage can in question and simply ask her if she thinks a body could fit inside there adequately. Bring a tape measurer along and start jotting down dimensions for her and the garbage can. Then respond... "hmmmph, I guess I'm gonna have to get another one of these somewhere". Maybe she will get the hint.
