To protect the environment, and ultimately ourselves, it is obvious that we need to take responsibility for our own waste and not 'fly-tip' it to other parts of the world!

We, the UK, need to take responsibility for the waste we produce not just ship it off and disown it.

We should be recycling at home not burying it elsewhere. Recycling plants here should be reopened and supported creating jobs here and helping the overall environment. Governments should also put pressure on manufacturers to produce less plastic waste.

We should be able to sort our own rubbish and if it because of cheap labour we have plenty of people in prison that could do this work and become retrain in waste management given hope for the future
