SRI LANKA RETURNS CONTAINERS OF ILLEGAL WASTE TO BRITAIN

On 27 September, Al Jazeera reported that Sri Lanka has shipped back to Britain 21 containers ā€“ holding up to 260 tonnes of rubbish – that the government said was brought to the island in violation of international laws governing the shipping of hazardous material.  It had arrived between September 2017 and March 2018 and contents were supposed to comprise used mattresses, carpeting and rugs, but had also contained hospital waste.
