UK's plastic rubbish ends up in China

It's one thing alot of industries are moving to China just because it's cheaper to run over there, but it's another thing to have recycled plastic rubbish being shipped to China. I saw the report on tv, and it's shocking to see rubbish which people have taken care of seperating for sake of the environment, ending up in a town in China. In this town, many people who work for pittance, are working in environments that are toxic. Everything is contaminated, the air, the river, and it's not surprisingly seeing children amongst the rubbish playing. Same on those companies, it's all legal, how can they sleep at night?
