Exporting Rubbish - Part of Waste Management?!

BBC One-Real Story has revealed on yesterday's programme (5th December 2005) how 500 tonnes unsorted rubbish has been shipped to Indonesia and other third world countries.

Jakarta itself has already had a problem with its own waste management, bearing in mind that the city doesn't even have enough trucks to transport their own rubbish, let alone having enough space to dump it over. This to be added with imported international rubbish that has lacked of management.


More because of how incompetent a waste management can be and taking into consideration that it will not literally able to help in reducing carbon emissions if it's not properly managed.
