Good on them, the west has the technology to deal with this waste it should be dealt with at home.

I agree with what the Malaysian government is doing. Considering all the plastic that’s in the ocean, this is also another reason why this is a very good step for them.

hopefully, countries in question will also take firm decisive action to be responsible on their part.

While I applaud this stance, I'm pretty sure this will increase illegal dumping.

Why not take a leaf out of Mexico,s book and use the plastic waste .they mix the plastic with road surface mix,the road surfacing lasts twice as long before needing repair
