The scope for malpractice in the waste industry is huge and often results in rich countries dumping their trash on poorer nations. So should countries be forced to start managing their waste domestically? And is there any real financial benefit for the nations receiving this waste? In this episode Mhairi and Stephen take on the dirty business of international waste.
