"Malaysia has become the world's rubbish bin," Greenpeace Malaysia public and engagement campaigner Heng Kiah Chun said during the launch of the report on Tuesday, adding that the US, Japan and Britain are the three biggest plastic waste exporters to Malaysia, accounting for 53% of the 754,000 tonnes of plastic waste the country imported from January to July 2018.
Greenpeace Malaysia revealed the data in its "The Recycling Myth" report uncovering regulation violations in plastic waste disposal.
