"The Netherlands has quite a reputation for it: we are a major drug country, and what happens is that the waste is being dumped in backcountry and forests," van der Eijk told Dezeen."Trucks full of barrels with chemical substances are pulled off the truck with a rope, causing them to land with a bang, making them leak from the moment of dumping," she continued.
"However, no matter how aesthetically appealing the affected metals may look, the project also evokes worry. After all, if these effects are reached with chemicals that are considered to be relatively harmless and safe, in a very short timespan, what is happening in places where much more harmful chemicals are dumped in the environment over the course of decades?"
