Catalogue of Solid Wastes Forbidden to Import into China by the End of 2017 (4 classes, 24 kinds) (2 page(s), in Chinese)
By the end of 2017,China will forbid the import of 4 classes, 24 kinds of solid wastes, including plastics waste from living sources, vanadium slag, unsorted waste paper and waste textile materials.
The reasons for urgent measure: According to the Special Actions of Strengthening the Supervision and Strictly Striking of Illegal “Foreign Garbage” by the General Administration of Customs of China, Ministry of Environmental Protection of China, Ministry of Public Security of China and General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine of China, as well as the Special Actions of Striking of the Illegal Actions of Imported Solid Waste Processing and Utilizing Sectors by Ministry of Environmental Protection of China, we found that large amounts of dirty wastes or even hazardous wastes are mixed in the solid waste that can be used as raw materials. This polluted China’s environment seriously. To protect China’s environmental interests and people’s health, we urgently adjust the imported solid wastes list, and forbid the import the solid wastes that are highly polluted.
