Are there countries that export trash?

    Yes – many countries import and export trash, especially near borders.  For example, Canadian provinces near Michigan export their trash to the United States for landfilling in Michigan.  Here is a quote and link to an article that discusses US export of trash to China.

    “According to data provided by the U.S. International Trade Commission, Chinese imports of U.S. cast-offs (scrap metal, waste paper, and the like) surged by an eye-popping 916 percent over the 2000-2008 period, with most of that expansion occurring after 2004. “
