Containers carrying Korean garbage - returned to Pyeongtaek Port, Gyeonggi, from the Philippines - are loaded onto trucks Wednesday. According to the Ministry of Environment, Korea sent 6,500 tons of plastic waste to the Philippines in July and October last year, but the Filipino government sent it back Sunday after discovering that the shipment contained diapers and medical waste.
