The Trash Illegally Shipped By Canada To The Philippines Will Be Sent Back
CANADIAN TRASH – To get rid of the container vans fill with tons of trash illegally sent to the country in multiple batches back in 2013 by Canada.
The Canadian government also vowed to work with Philippines to seek alternative choice without heated engagements. As they are also looking to resolve the trash issue appropriately.
In total, 103 container vans were shipped to the Philippines, all loaded with trash that add up to 2,450 tons.
On May 30 (Thurssday), the trash-filled container vans will be reshipped to its shipment origin. Secretary of Foreign Affairs Teodoro Locsin Jr. confirmed the shipment info.
In a Twitter post, the Foreign Affairs secretary revealed that the shipment date and current status of the trash problem:
“ALL CONTAINERS CONTAINING GARBAGE CLEANED AND READY TO GO. WAITING FOR A COUPLE OF DOCUMENTS AND ROUTINE PERMISSION FROM CHINA FOR TRANSSHIPMENT TO CANADA. DEPARTURE IS MAY 30. Anybody gets in the way one way or another, I will screw you dry. Don’t provoke me.”
The newly set schedule for the reshipment is actually 15 days late beyond the deadline that the Philippines set for Canada which was at May 15, 2019.
Photos of the container vans being readied for the reshipment was also documented be secretary Locsin. Posted also on his Twitter feed, are photos of the vans to be reshipped.
The Canadian government also mentioned last week that they have already provided a contract for a separate private company to return the garbage safely to Canada “as soon as possible.”
This is according to an article from Inquirer.
The Envirment and Climate Change in Canada (ECCC) placed an offer to proceed with the shipment and get it done by the end of June:
“The company will begin preparation for shipping in the coming days. The removal will be complete by the end of June, as the waste must be safely treated to meet Canadian safety and health requirements.”
The Malacañang, however, denied their suggestion.
That is all there is to it, at least fo now. We’ll post updates as soon as we got them.
