AIBU to be pissed off by my neighbours constant bonfires?

I live in a flat and have been here a year now. We are on a hill and the plot below is a house that has been empty and worked on since we got here.

All my windows face down the hill and every single day for the past couple of weeks they have had a bonfire. Fine when I'm working as I can ignore it, but FFS a gorgeous sunny bank holiday? As we get all the sun streaming through in the morning I have to choose between boiling alive or having my entire flat stinking of smoke.

Why can't they just take their stuff to the dump like everyone else?!

If it genuinely is every day then it could be considered to be a nuisance and you could have ways to resolve it

I'm sure they aren't actually allowed to have bonfires every day. If it is causing a problem then contact the council.

Contact the council and complain. We had neighbours burning rubber once years ago. Every evening they'd burn rubber. The whole street contacted the council and they stopped.

YANBU - how annoying and as others have said probably shouldn't be allowed. If it goes on this week I'd get in touch with the council

If they're builders they are avoiding the cost of a skip and paying commercial dumping costs by burning stuff. And if they've got a few jobs on it's quite possible that they're using this empty site to get rid of rubbish from their other sites.
