Customs represses smuggling →

  A few days ago, the Ministry of Ecology and Environment and other departments issued an announcement stating that from January 1 next year, the import of solid waste in any way will be prohibited.

Solid waste refers to solid and semi-solid wastes produced in production, consumption, life and other activities.

For a long time, my country has been the world's largest garbage importer. Now it has been a few days before the total ban on solid waste imports. How is this work progressing?

Qingdao, Shandong: The last few batches of imported solid waste arrive in Hong Kong

  The waste paper at the solid waste inspection site at Huangdao Port in Qingdao, Shandong is part of the final batch of solid waste entering the country.

Waste corrugated paper from the United States, mixed with a small amount of plastic and sponge.

The waste paper has been fumigated and disinfected after disembarking. There is no pungent smell, and it smells like used old courier boxes.

From January 1 next year, my country will ban the import of these solid wastes.

  In fact, as early as 2017, the State Council issued the "Implementation Plan for Prohibiting the Entry of Foreign Garbage to Promote the Reform of the Solid Waste Import Management System", requiring a total ban on the entry of "foreign garbage".

For more than three years, with the advancement of solid waste reform, enterprises are also preparing for transformation.

"Foreign garbage" smuggling methods are constantly being renovated, and most of them try to get through the customs by illegally reporting the name of the product, which is highly concealed and harmful to the society.

In the next step, the Customs will work with all relevant departments to investigate cases where they are found, and fight against them.
