The UK’s Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs has launched an investigation into the garbage containers shipped from Britain to Sri Lanka, the UK Telegraph reported.
It says human remains were found in containers shipped from Britain to Sri Lanka for recycling.
The newspaper revealed that the British government has launched an investigation into the matter, with Sri Lankan authorities announcing that the containers will be sent back to Britain.
The UK Telegraph newspaper revealed that this information has been revealed when investigations were carried out to find out about a stench in the yard of the Colombo Harbor where 111 containers had been imported two years ago.
It states that the containers, along with the mattresses, the most hazardous substances, clinical waste, plastics and mattresses Custom officials have discovered.
The Central Environmental Authority (CEA) of Sri Lanka quoted the Telegraph as saying that the garbage brought to Sri Lanka under the guise of importing mattresses is extremely hazardous.
The report further states that if the British human bodies are found in these containers, they can be believed to be the waste of NHS hospitals which are facing a clinical waste disposal crisis.
