Dalian Customs Rejects 105-Ton Solid Waste from Entry


On May 12, Dalian Customs kept 105 tons of aluminum waste and scrap from entry and conducted returning formalities for such waste which were imported  from the USA.


The import was declared by a Liaoning-based company with the aim of processing into aluminum ingots for re-export. In manual inspection at subordinate Dayaowan Customs House, the inspectors found the goods abnormal. In all of five containers, we can see the aluminum waste and scrap mixed with a large number of non-metal impurities, including scrap rubbers and waste circuit boards, said an inspector.


Upon the findings, this Customs House immediately contacted with local Inspection & Quarantine agency for three mutuals joint treatment and with Chinese Research Academy of Environmental Sciences for the goods identification. Finally, it was confirmed by experts that the batch of aluminum waste and scrap had both impurity and dust proportions beyond state-specified standards, thus falling under the ban on import.
