people have b@lls!
i did a brush removel job a few years back, truck was all loaded just had to clean up around the truck a little( twigs that fell off) they start comming out with household garbage, wtf! said i was getting paid to go to the dump anyways ,it didnt matter what i was taking with me! so i got paid, then took the bags off and told them that the check they gave me was for the brush, not for the garbage bags, got in and drove off!

in your case i would have taken the debris that you had and put it where they were cleaning. see how they like it!!

I had a lady that I was doing a clean up for actually try to throw a couple old rotten pieces of plwood on my trailer a couple years ago. When I asked her what she was doing, she said, "Well you are doing our clean up. I just thought I would help out a little." I came unglued on her. I stood there discussing this with her for 5 minutes and she just couldn't understand why the crap in her house wasn't included in the clean up... like the term "lawn care" doesn't lend a clue...

I'd remove their debris from my trailer, place them in the person's front yard, and tell them not to approach my vehicle again, or the police would be called.

Idiots.
