Canada hires Bollore Logistics Canada to ship garbage back from the Philippines

561 Garbage


The Canadian government has announced that it has hired Bollore Logistics Canada to return containers of household garbage and a mixture of discarded plastics, metals and paper back to Canada after they were mistakenly sent to the Philippines nearly six years ago. The containers are expected to return to Canada next month. The cost of the contract is just over $1.14-million. The container were originally shipped to the Philippines in 2013 and 2014, though the shipments were prohibited under the Philippines’ import regulations. In 2016 a Philippines court ordered the importers to ship the containers back to Canada at their own expense, but they did not comply with the court order. The Canadian company that shipped the garbage has since gone out of business.
