Subject: Re: Plastics recycling

12/12 to 12/10 request: International laws for movement of plastic wastes to Singapore can be a major consulting project. The amount of time to render a full report to this multifaceted request requires a paid basis for an answer. See the Professional Help section of this website.
Be that as it may, we can tell you that the major International Treaty is called Marpol, but only applies to plastics dumping in the oceans of the world. The United Nations approach is barking up the wrong tree. The markets have been studied, as has the currently established export trade to all of the nations of the Pacific Rim.
