The Philippines is not “the garbage dump of the world.”

Environmentalists have emphasized this on Thursday, now that the Philippine government is returning garbage to Canada, which was brought to the Philippines more than five years ago.

Of the more than one hundred containers of waste that were then shipped from Canada to the Philippines, 69 were sent back to Ottawa on a private ship hired by the Philippine government.

The ship, MV Bavaria, will depart from Subic Bay in the night from Thursday to Friday, the authorities said.

“Now that the 69 containers are returning home, we explicitly say that the Philippines is not the garbage dump of the world,” says Aileen Lucero, national coordinator of the Ecowaste Coalition.

According to Greenpeace, the Canadian waste problem shows how developed countries have exploited weak national regulations and gaps in international law to dump waste in poor countries.
