According to the Malaysian Ministry of Environment and the British Embassy in Malaysia, in a joint statement reported by Malaysian news agency Bernama, the British containers had arrived at the Malaysian port of Penang Island in March 2018.

The statement added that the entry of containers was considered illegal because they failed to comply with the requirements in the papers related to imported materials.

The Malaysian authorities have pledged earlier to send plastic waste to the country of origin, and to force the country to pay for the transport of those waste. Kuala Lumpur last October detained more than 300 containers in the port of “Penang”, where some agreed states initially received 200 containers.

Malaysia is the biggest landfill destination after China announced it would not import plastic waste.
