Philippines wants Canada to take back tons of garbage sent to its country illegally
12 December 2014
Philippine customs officials are still looking for a way to return 50 shipping containers filled with garbage that arrived in their country from Canada. The garbage was discovered in an illegal shipment in February. CCTV America’s Barnaby Lo reported this story from Manila.
The illegal garbage was labeled “recyclable plastic”, which would have been legal, but the containers actually had a mix of plastics, papers, household waste and used adult diapers.
So far there’s no indication that the Canadian government has taken any steps to ship the garbage back to where it came from.
