Ongoing issue now over several years. Plant hire business near me, located on outskirts of a small village, dispose of all their tyres, plastics on a huge bonfire once or twice a month. Because it's on the edge of the village people can smell it, but not always identify the source.
I've physically approached the owner twice now, to complain, have had an ongoing correspondence with environmental health - they monitored and fined him £100 - and it still continues.
I gave up with environmental health as I concluded if one's brass necked enough, one can get away with...a lot!
I think a business, no matter the size, has a responsibility - be it to the residents nearby, the environment etc - to dispose of waste correctly, not pollute the locality.
Next time he has a fire, I was going to put a post up on the local Facebook community page, just to draw attention to who and what is causing this pollution. I have loads of video/photographic evidence, and think the company need calling out on their behaviour.
I also realise this could potentially backfire and cause me a massive headache. So, would you stand up and speak out, do what is right and say what you believe, or shut the windows and ignore the smoke?
