Since 2012, the UK exported 2,700,000 tons of waste plastic to China, accounting for 2/3 of the total plastic exports in the UK.That is really big issue for England to deal with such a plastic rubbish.
In previous years, 40% of the EU's plastic garbage was shipped to China. And with a ban on it. About 3,000,000 tons of plastic garbage was nowhere to be placed.
New Zealand exported a total of 90 million yuan of rubbish to China last year with a total weight of 50,000 tons. This year, these trash will not enter China. For New Zealand, which has a small homeland, domestic land can not be used and the second largest exporter of rubbish is not easy to find.
Australia is equally helpless at the ban, exporting to China every year worth 523 million US dollars of recycled materials, and now actually need to spend money! Rebuilding there own garbage collection system is not a task that can be done in the short term.
