I was wondering if this is common? We've been developing our property for the last year. We are tilling up my arena area right now and making it nice and smooth. Well we hit all this junk...trash...metal...just crap. Our neighbor saw us digging it all out and said, "Oh that was so and so's burn pile." I was about to say what kind of an idiot buries his trash when he can have it hauled off for $19 a month by the trash guys. When the neighbor continues to say, "Yeah I just buried some more in my hole." WHA? Is this common to bury trash, pollute the Earth...and ruin the land for future owners?
Anyway...we bought a magnet and are digging it all out. What a pain.
