Garbage dumping in the Balkans and Eastern Europe

An article about the heritage of illegal garbage dumping of often very poisonous garbage by the mafia in Southern Italy ("A Mafia Legacy Taints the Earth in Southern Italy") contains one interesting twist:

General Costa, the environmental police commander, said the Camorra had stopped burying waste a few years ago and was now illegally shipping it to Eastern Europe or the Balkans.

I have yet to see the first report from those areas. Makes me curious how long it will take.

If anyone has concrete information on this subject please tell it me in a reaction to this article!
