Solid waste re­turned to sen­der

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - NATION -

More than 40 met­ric tons of un­de­clared waste plas­tics have been re­turned over­seas and a to­tal of 200 tons of haz­ardous zinc tail­ings was safely dis­posed of, Qing­dao cus­toms said on Sun­day. In ac­cor­dance with or­ders from the coun­try’s Gen­eral Ad­min­is­tra­tion of Cus­toms, Qing­dao launched “Op­er­a­tion Green Fence” in Fe­bru­ary and has since stepped up man­age­ment of im­ported solid waste and cracked down on il­le­gally im­ported garbage.
