The judgment recovery expert had hit a roadblock in their sacramento junk pickup post judgment investigations. They had a particularly sly and experienced judgment debtor that hid their assets well. The judgment enforcer had accumulated quite a bit of information about their judgment debtor, however they had no clues about their available assets. This is the story of their first trash search experience, also known as a dumpster dive.
The judgment debtor lived in a house that they might be renting for cash, about ten miles away from the judgment enforcer’s office. The judgment enforcer first used Google Maps, then did a drive-by, to see what he could find out by making a quick visit to the judgment debtor’s house.
The judgment enforcer then Googled “cityname garbage pickup” and found the local trash/recycling company for where the judgment debtor lived. The garbage company’s web site did not show the scheduled days and areas that garbage was picked up. So, he called the garbage company, and said he was going to move to their town soon, and he wanted to get a little bit of information.
The judgment enforcer told the garbage employee the street and block where their judgment debtor lived at, as the place he would soon move to. He then asked them what day, or day of the week, would his garbage receptacles have to be on the street for pickup? He got his answer (Wednesday morning) and thanked them and said goodbye.
The following Wednesday morning, about 4:30 AM, the judgment enforcer and their buddy started their adventure. The judgment enforcer’s friend drove a small pickup truck to the judgment debtor’s house. As predicted, the garbage and recycling cans were in front of their house, at the edge of the street.
