GLRPPR Sector Resource: Smuggling Europe's Waste to Poorer Countries

Title:
Smuggling Europe's Waste to Poorer Countries

Abstract:
Exporting waste illegally to poor countries has become a vast and growing international business, as companies try to minimize the costs of new environmental laws that tax waste or require that it be recycled or otherwise disposed of in an environmentally responsible way.
