Q114: Some rubbish has been dumped, who do I ring to remove it?

If the rubbish is on private land then it is the landowner's responsibility to remove it. The council will come and remove it but there will be a charge.

If the rubbish is on council land then you should contact your local authority to come and remove the rubbish.

You should not try and remove the rubbish yourself if you do not know what substance has been dumped, it may be harmful.
