Canada to take back trash sent to Philippines after Duterte's warnings

The Canadian government has promised to take back its waste, which has been rotting in the Philippines for more than five years, by the end of June. According to Canadian media Wednesday (local time), the country's Environment Minister Catherine McKenna said the ministry signed a contract with a shipping firm, Bollore Logistics Canada, to take back the containers of garbage shipped to the Philippines between 2013 and 2014. They were sent by a private Canadian company falsely labeled as “recyclable materials.”
