Usually around my area this is done on a Wednesday night when people leave their bins out for the bin men on Thursday morning. You can do it when the bins are empty too, but is more fun if they're full.
Bin jobbin works best in long roads and streets, when there is at least 10 bins lined up outside and you can run past kicking them all over while shouting obsurd insults.
