Major waste exporters, Major waste receivers

Year: 2006
From collection: Vital Waste Graphics 2
Author: Emmanuelle Bournay
Description:
Some countries, for example the Netherlands and Belgium, seem to act as “waste dispatchers”. Their figures suggest that they are the top waste exporters, a fact that reflects neither the waste they produce (given their population) nor their internal processing capacity. Presumably large amounts of hazardous waste are simply passing through Antwerp, Rotterdam and other industrial ports on the North Sea.
