I will say people who like what looks like their trash to us, can love their stuff fiercely with not reason.
Usually in a situation where you have to give easement the “road” is maintained by the person who needs the easement.

It's been left like this for weeks.
Load all of it up in a truck and drop it off in her front yard.

Not if you take it to her home.

Your first mistake was calling the sheriff. What you should have done was to wait until she wasn't home, then load the stuff up and take it to the dump.

Rural Washington is like that. Where I lived there's a guy who claims the dirt road in front of his house is on his property and it isn't an easement, even though there are at least six other houses along both sides of that road. So he blocks it off with his vans and a gate and people have to go the slightly longer way around to get to their houses. He'd never get away with that in a regular suburb.

Neighbor across that street, good pal of mine, talked to that owner few times asking her to clean up the street. No response, she said "I'll be doing another g sale" and that's it.
They called sheriff office, deputy finally showed up, talked to owner, turned around and "advised" to "have this resolved with the neighbor".
When asked, if it will be Ok to bring pickup truck and just clean it themselves, he replied that it will be illegal and they can't do it.
Now my buddy is stuck with street that looks like dump and non responsive owner who simply ignores them.


Any functional suggestions?
County and municipality will not get involved as "this is private road and civil matter".

They are trying to keep the street clean and plan on moving out and renting their mobile home. Of course, with street looking like that, renting becomes problematic. They do not have access blocked to their property, though neighbor once did put barricades across the street claiming it as "private proprty do not enter" but removed them when asked to do so.

When looking to purchase property on a private road in the future investigate to see what the deed, covenants and restrictions says to address such potentialities.

It is, as they told you, a civil matter. That means you could hire an attorney or go to small claims court to sue for something like lower property values or pain and suffering. Hopefully just a threat of a suit would get them to do something, but I wouldn't count on it. My guess is they just don't have the money to even take it to the dumps.

And how, pray tell, would you go about discovering this information?
