Published May 22, 2019 7:58pm

While the presence of Canadian trash in the country remains an unresolved issue, another shipment of garbage imported from Australia was intercepted in Tagoloan, Misamis Oriental.

The broker of the shipment was also the one that handled the transport of tons of trash from South Korea to Tagoloan in July and October 2018.

The stalled shipment will be subjected to scientific tests to ascertain whether these are indeed PEF or just ordinary garbage. The results will be used by the BOC to determine if an entity needs to be penalized.

The EcoWaste Coalition, on the other hand, said that these are clearly imported waste.
