The 15 largest importer countries of G7 plastic waste

This graphic shows the 15 largest importers of plastic scrap in 2018 as well as their % of mismanaged waste as calculated by Jambeck et al. (2015). In 2018, because of China’s significant decrease in imports of plastic scrap, other Asian countries drastically increased their imports, many of whom have inadequate waste management systems in place.
