Trade in Waste

Having fulminated earlier this month about the non-e-day we had in Palmerston North city, I was very interested to read in the IELP blog of the trade in waste which is happening between Japan and the Philippines.   You can read it at: http://worldtradelaw.typepad.com/ielpblog/2010/11/trade-in-everything-electronic-waste.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed:+ielpblog+(International+Economic+Law+and+Policy+Blog)
 There are some references to other posts at the bottom of Simon's post.  

Of course China is the world's largest importer of the world's waste materials according to an article published in The Guardian Weekly on the 16th January 2010.  China is reputed to take as a third of Britain's recyclables.  However the economic downturn has affected this industry in China.
