Qingdao Customs in east China’s Shandong Province refused entry of 4,067 tonnes of solid waste into China and 150 containers loaded with mill scale were shipped back to a port where it originated. China custom said “Mill scale, one of the solid wastes banned from import, will cause severe damage to the ecological environment once entering the country.”

China began importing solid waste as a source of raw materials in the 1980s and for years has been the world’s largest importer. But with rising awareness of environmental protection and China’s green drive, it will halt imports by year end.
