Export of Scrap from Thilaffushi,Maldives

The only Cargo which is exported from Maldives is Scarp. As they make sure their environment is kept clean being a country of Tourism. Most of the construction waste are dumped in the island of Thilaffushi, most of which are burnt and the metals and plastic scraps are being exported to India either through containers or through barges during the return voyage, as most of them return to their country empty. The available scraps are being exporter due to the space constraint and to keep their environment clean. The exporter scraps are then being traded in the Indian Local market to metal forging industries. We have been importing scraps from Male through barges during our return voyage for an optimum utilization of our resources.
