A Trailer load of recycled plastic bottles en route to be recycled in Dominican Republic from Haiti was returned by order of the Dominican Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources.

Supposedly, its Haitian trash, "fatra" in Creole, and they don't want it.

Dominican newspaper El Dia reported there are laws in the Dominican Republic which prohibits the importation of "waste" into the national territory to prevent toxic substances from affecting the health of people or ecosystems.
