Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dumpster

In the last year on our road into town in rural Vermont, we have seen the personal effects of 3 people who have recently died packed into dumpsters at the side of the road. In one case the family had a tag sale and sold all the valuable stuff (her crystal collection) and tossed the rest in the dumpster. For some reason this creeps me out big time and I don't want it to happen to me. Are there best practices for disposing of the personal effects of family members?How did your family dispose of the stuff of the deceased that you didn't want? Yes.... I know about a will and have one.

Not A DIY Project

As a result of Irene/Vermont flooding, the stream next to our house diverted into a field and there is now a 10 foot high, 20 foot wide and 40 foot long pile of tree debris where the stream used to be. I am not a chain saw or dynamite guy. How do I/Should I get rid of it? I am worried about the effect of ice jams in the winter. I really don't have money for this. Is there aid for something like this?
