If you live in a construction area, thankfully they are in and out fairly quickly and home building will leave your area and move on. I think they do a fairly good job of cleaning up the construction site itself every day.

Here are some previous threads on the subject. One was written by a renter.

Seems to me that this would reflect negatively on hiring the contractor. I would not trust the employees to do a good job on my home. Where is management?

I called home warranty and the trash in my yard stopped immediately, while the construction continued. No problem at all.

Default Construction workers are like that all over

Workers seem to be like that every place I have lived and we move a lot. I have a corner lot where I live know and any time anyone has work done the workers park their trucks in front of my house as once they get down the steep driveways below me they have trouble getting out. They sit in their trucks have lunch and throw the empty bags boxes cans and worst of all glass bottles into the trees in my front yard. We have a littering law but it is rarely enforced. It is just one of those their mama didn't raise them right things.
