I'm pretty sure it is common practice for your work order to include....remove lawn clippings. Doesn't say find somewhere to hide and dump them. Never fails when we get a property that has previously been serviced.
Here is a pic of what I mean....fresh grass clippings they hid under some leaves they didn't rake up.
We never raked a leaf until they started paying us $50.00 every 2 bags then we started that. Prior to that we blew the leaves out away from the property and mulched them with the mower. Now we get paid $2,000.00 for an afternoon of leaf raking so we stopped mulching.
If this is as bad as the guys you are following leave you I would consider yourself lucky. Today I found all the shingles from a roof repair and I think I even know which property they came from as well as several tires and cans of paint inside a property that has been cleaned out since 2011. Guess we will pick up their scraps because they couldn't afford the dump fee.
I also found this. The order mill out of Indianapolis that we share our state with did this wint. I hope to be billing them for some new radiators.
