Solid waste im­ports ban

Global Times US Edition - - BIZUPDATE -

The Chi­nese gov­ern­ment has in­tro­duced a tight­ened ban on solid waste im­ports, ac­cord­ing to an of­fi­cial doc­u­ment.

Ef­fec­tive on De­cem­ber 31, 2018, 32 types of solid waste will be banned from im­ports, ac­cord­ing to the doc­u­ment re­leased by the Min­istry of Ecol­ogy and En­vi­ron­ment, the Min­istry of Com­merce, the Na­tional Devel­op­ment and Re­form Com­mis­sion, and the Gen­eral Ad­min­is­tra­tion of Cus­toms.

The newly-added prod­ucts in­clude hard­ware, waste and scraps of stain­less steel and wood.

China’s im­ports of solid waste slumped fur­ther in the first 10 months of 2018 as the gov­ern­ment stepped up en­force­ment on a ban on solid waste im­ports.
