Green groups to Canada: Time to take back your toxic waste

Green groups and civil society organizations gathered today at the Canadian Embassy to call for the “re-exportation” of their toxic wastes which were discovered by the Enforcement Department of the Bureau of Customs (BOC) headed by Deputy Commissioner Ariel Nepomuceno last January and initially intended as plastic scraps supposedly for recycling. The groups delivered a petition letter to Canadian Ambassador Neil Reeder to ask for the immediate return of the 50 container vans of toxic wastes back to its Canadian port of origin.
