Checks on export containers soars

Comment

The problem is that the assessment as to whether a load is acceptable or not is too subjective. One EA officer may think its OK but then another doesn't and the container is returned. For example if a bale of plastic has one aluminium can in it, does that make it mixed waste? If a bale of cardboard has one plastic bag in it, is it mixed waste? If the answer to the above is yes then every shipment of material should be turned back and the recycling industry will grind to a halt.....
