Malaysia cracks down on illegal plastic smuggling

May 29, 2019 14:04 IST

Malaysia will send back some 3,000 metric tons of non-recyclable plastic waste to countries such as the US, UK, Canada and Australia. The initiative comes as a way to avoid becoming a dumping ground for rich nations, according to the country's Environment Minister. The government has clamped down on dozens of illegal plastic recycling facilities that had mushroomed across the country, shuttering more than 150 plants since last July.
