Netherlands is Largest Transporter of Illegal Waste to Asia and Africa

The Netherlands, together with Italy and Belgium, are the largest European transporters of illegal waste to Asia and Africa. Between March and May this year 30,000 tons were identified. This was discovered by the World Customs Association in the framework of its Operation Demeter. The Ministry of the Environment says that this derives partly from Rotterdam’s role as a major container port.
