However, a spokesman from Canada’s environment ministry has recently stated that the country will not be picking up its plastic waste that was dumped in Malaysia. Environment and Climate Change Canada spokesman Gabrielle Lamontagne said in a statement to Reuters,

“There are no plans for the Canadian government to pick up waste in Malaysia.”

The spokesman added that they have received no information about waste shipments from Canada to Malaysia. Meanwhile, the country’s environment ministry has reached out to the Malaysian government to get more details about this issue.

The Philippines also recently shipped back over 1,500 tonnes (approx 1.5 million kilos) of plastic waste back to Canada, due to arrive by the end of June. Meanwhile, Canada announced that it will accept the waste and treat it at a waste-to-energy facility.
