Southeast Asia countries don't want to be the world's dumping sites

They refuse to be the world's dumping sites... Here is why these countries in Southeast Asia are sending thousands of tons of waste back to Western countries.

    Good. Now our government cannot ignore their duty on how things are packaged and how we deal with our consumption and waste.

    Stop misrepresenting it, it's being bought and shipped, not just sent there against their will.

    Great that Asian counties refuse to be exploited once again by greedy people! The west both has capacity and technology to take care of it’s own trash.

    China is the biggest culprits in producing plastic products. The Westerners should stop importing from China.

    Why did you just mention the recepient countries? You should have exposed the western countries who do it.

    Within Europe this is normal to. Uk ships trash to Holland, so they can burn it. Numbers show that people waist less, and separate more. Still the pollution did increase. Warnings are made.. I read 20% of the waist isn't even theirs.. i'ts all about money

    What happened to the companies who buy recycled plastic and produce products from it -- items like carpet, decking, countertops, shampoo bottles? I honestly thought that the countries buying our plastic waste were manufacturing items from it -- not burying/burning it.

    Most of the plastic waste in the oceans come from Asia...as a collective. How about we just dump all that trash back on them?

    Thin plastic needs to be isolated and heat pressured. Blocks of such plastic may be used then in the asphalt industry!

    Every country should have to keep their own waste.
