Trans Frontier Shipment of Waste

Trans frontier shipment of waste refers to the movement of waste materials across international borders, typically for the purposes of disposal, recovery or recycling. This process is regulated by international agreements, such as the Basel Convention, which seek to minimize the risks posed by the international transport of hazardous waste to human health and the environment. Trans frontier shipment of waste involves a number of actors, including waste generators, waste carriers, and waste disposal facilities. The process typically requires extensive documentation, including permits and notifications, to ensure that waste is transported and disposed of in a safe and environmentally sound manner. The management of trans frontier shipment of waste is an important aspect of global efforts to promote sustainable waste management and reduce the negative impacts of waste on the environment and human health.
