That is awesome! I have been tempted to drop a 14cy box of leaves at a customer's house who didn't pay the cleanup bill.

Ive posted about this in another forum here. We were doing some work for a client mostly removing trees, chipping and stump grinding. The husband asked while I was their to remove some extra tress and we agreed on a price but didn't add it to the contract. The added trees chipped up equalled about a full truck lod of chips. The wife refused to pay saying along the lins that I was a new company and she was teaching me an important lesson on getting contracts properly signed. So I went back in the middle of the night and dopped a full load of chips in the driveway blacking the car in. I went back in the morning in an unlettered car and watched the husband and son shovel it out of the way to get to work/school. She called the police and the sgt, who I knew, called me. I simply told him that she did not pay me to remove the product because their was no contract, so I simply returned it back to her.

I heard a rumor that if a snow client refuses to pay, you can dump a load of snow at the entrance way. Not only will they pay, but also pay for the removal of said snow.

Isn't that considered "Illegal Dumping" and thus against the law?

Look up "The Paver Guy" on YouTube. He repo'ed a whole neighborhood of paver driveways on a commercial job because of late payments. He has his semi on site. He put the pavers on pallets and loaded them. Awesome !

I know each state is different, but how can contractors get away with that? I'm under the impression once materials are on a customers property they are the customers property?
