on the import of used plastics in 2018 earlier this year malaysia and also the philippines send back hundreds of tons of unwanted plastic garbage to north america. so let's talk about the rubbish problem with our he's a reporter from. environment desk a recent study says that most of the river borne plastic ways that goes into the oceans comes from 10 rivers 9 of which are in africa and asia. is that all imported waste from the west you know a lot of it is actually domestically produced waste from south asia particular southeast asian countries and in fact what's maybe surprising for a lot of people is that the amount of waste that the west exports is not really particular responsible for the pollution in our rivers and erosions what happens i think is that the west produces a lot more rubbish than other countries to keep
6:51 pm
a person. but there also better recycling it and this is one of the issues a lot of the waste generated in the west from plastic he even if it's thrown away into landfills and it's not even recycled these landfills are often sealed their tight containers from which a plastic won't reach out of and in a lot of east asian countries and southeast asian countries that isn't the case it seems to lots of these asian countries who have made good a good deal of money with taking in rubbish from from the west and then doing whatever with it. but now it's all going back and people say has stepped away from from from the business is it not good business then it will i think it's still good business for many companies that are acting but what's happening is that the countries themselves of legislating against this so what happened before with i mean you have this enormous sort of supply of western ways western countries european and north american countries don't want to deal with and they're looking
