    I still think your asking for trouble doing that, if you wanted to take someone to court and recoup your money, that'll make it pretty hard

    if the cops arent interested in these guys owing us money, it follows they arent interested in us dumping their clippings back on their driveway.

    I always tell em my local dump charges $6 a ute load, so thats about 8 ute loads of grass i owe you.


    essentially these idiots are lazy, thats why they dont buy a mower to do it themself.

    they are just looking for an easy mark.

    just dont be easy

    They'll do you for illegal dumping
    And still won't be interested in the civil matter
    Best way is to not get yourself into that situation

    but officer they asked me to leave some lawn clippings for the compost bin
    Anything Ian says may or may not be garbage, it may also be his own opinion or it may not be his opinion at all, it may just be something he felt like stating anyone following his advice does so at their own risk and may be doing something Ian would actually advise against.
    And if you don't like what Ian has to say use the ignore function if you don't know how ask i will gladly tell you

    terms and conditions:

    "Until such time as the invoice, as presented, is paid in full, the contractor may, at his discretion, return to the customer an amount of green waste similar in size, but not necessarily in type, to that removed from the customer's property"

    Then let the non paying customer take YOU to court to get the waste picked back up.

    oh, and PAY you of course.

    and the cops wont touch you because its IN THE CONTRACT. lol

    our local cop rang me while the customer was there in the station complaining about me, I explained it all to him quoting a lot of this thread, things like how the cops won't help us like they will a servo, taxi or aa shop getting ripped off, how we are left to fend for ourselves, explained that I was not dumping anything I was returning a product that was not paid for, explained to him the lengths I had gone to to get the costumer pay and the months I had been ignored, explained that I had not threatened anyone harmed any property or even trespassed on the customers property, i told him I had deducted the price of said product from the bill and in the end he agreed I was legally in the right, that I had done nothing that warranted his interference.
    he tried to advise me that the customer would bad mouth me if I left the clippings in the driveway, but he agreed that they would still do it if I did remove them.
    talking to you guys and reading this thread prepared me well for the conversation and the cop had to agree that I was within my rights to do what I did.
    If you want to f&*k me, you have to buy me dinner first!
    Cheers

    Can I get some ideas from the forum on..
    How long do you wait for payment. Residential owners and renters.p
    What do you do if payment doesn't come in after a job is done...
    How many times do you go back and mow if no payment is received??
    Keeping in mind a lot of my clients are direct debit / post payment and I don't see them face to face very often.
    The ones that leave the money out are always very good with payments..
