This joint Fifth Estate/Enquête investigation provides a comprehensive picture of the illegal plastic pollution trade in Canada. In a year-long enquiry, a team of investigators went on the trail of one of North America’s biggest recycling barons showing how his company was circumventing rules against exporting plastic waste. This investigation proves how Canada continues to ship plastic waste – often misidentified as recyclable material – to developing countries like India and other Asian destinations.
