This is going on for a long time and the exports are not only limited to the UK.
The entire EU is a big exporter and the US nowadays exports more containers with garbage than goods.
The rip off is in the costs we pay for recycling projects and the risks people in the third world run during the recycling process of our waste. They cook and burn print plates from computer parts to get out the valuable materials without proper protective gear
like safety glasses and masks and work under horrible conditions. What's worse, most of them are children who should be in school.
In the Netherlands we pay an additional recycling fee for all electronics, computers and household appliances, introduced in 1994.
Meanwhile the fund has a reserve of over 300 million Euro. People have filed protests against the rip off but the overpaid fat cats
have have created a wall of legal procedures to protect their free money source.
Yes, we have some recycling facilities but a huge part of the collected junk is simply exported to the countries mentioned in your article.
The EU in close cooperation with our political and administrative management is completely screwing up our societies and nations.
They screw up our defense, our financial position, our pensions, healthcare, car manufacturing, our food chain, our energy chain, all with one single goal, accelerate the use of resources, raising costs for citizens and companies, reducing our ability to earn money and accumulate wealth, in short they screw up our lives and they rob us blind.
The bio fuel scam, the cap & trade, CO2 sequestration, windmills, solar panels and electric cars are plain SABOTAGE MASQUERADING A SOLUTION FOR A NON EXISTING PROBLEM. Yes, the EU is sabotaging our Industrial Society and they hit us where they can.
Please read this article and you know how devastating the introduction of electric vehicles is and why it will accelerate our use of oil and disturb our markets:http://seekingalpha.com/article/251134- ... urce-cliff
The current riots in NA and the Middle East are also caused by EU, US and UN policies.http://factsnotfantasy.blogspot.com/201 ... tions.html
Now we know the EU together with our politicians is deliberately sabotaging our society.
The green solutions are only accelerating our use of resources run our economies into the ground.
What are we going to do about it?
DECLARATION OF WAR ANYONE?.
