Help! It's Shabbos and the wind is blowing my garbage cans halfway down the block! I know they're muktza, so I can't move them. What can I do?
Mi Yodeya is a question and answer site for those who base their lives on Jewish law and tradition and anyone interested in learning more. Join them; it only takes a minute:
Here's how it works:
- Anybody can ask a question

The Mishna Brurah 311:30 says that as long as you don't use your hands, moving muktza is not a problem. So kick those garbage cans back to where they came from!
