My folks have land in rural UP Michigan. It's where my grandparents lived as well.
It was very common to take your large trash items and dump them over the nearest embankment, where you couldn't see it any more. Out of sight, out of mind.

When my folks decided to build on that land, they had to have someone come in and clean out a hillside. A piano, a refrigerator, lots of tires and cement chunks and other misc. junk.
