When we have been dumped in private land illegally

When owner of land, building or manager tries to keep the place clean, and refuse was thrown away, it must process the refuse by own responsibility.
Do not let do illegal dumping; establish wall to save so that people cannot enter abusively, and please keep attention that is usually enough for management of land in mind.

Illegal dumping to the sea

I would like report in Coast Guard (the outside site) or Yokohama Regional Coast Guard Headquarters (TEL: 045-201-4522) if we see marine pollution including illegal dumping of refuse to the sea.
