Return to sender: 69 containers carrying mislabeled waste returned to Canada from the Philippines

Rubbish, labeled as plastic recyclables, was stranded in the Philippines for years.

The 69 containers arrived in Vancouver to be incinerated this week.

The move ends a dispute which started in 2013 that sparked a diplomatic row between Ottawa and Manila.
