Thanks for your enquiry.
You will need to check your Deeds to see if it defines the length/width of the right of way. If there is no definition or plan showing the right of way, and all it says is that your neighbour has a right of way over your drive, then he has a right to use the full width and length of your drive for the purpose of gaining access to his property.
Please note however, a right of way does NOT give him a right to use your land for any other purpose other than for gaining access. Therefore, he is certainly not entitled to put his bins on your drive!
I hope this answers your question, and if so, I would be grateful if you could leave positive feedback.
