240 tons of imported solid waste returned
Guangzhou customs in Guangdong province has shipped back two batches of imported solid waste to its place of origin, the General Administration of Customs said on Friday. Intercepted during an inspection, the garbage, weighing 240 metric tons, was identified as a mixture of zinc oxide and zinc-blended leftovers. Combined with dirt, coal cinder and unoxidized metal, it would have posed a threat to the environment when processed.
