A customs officer counts the smuggled solid waste seized yesterday in Shantou City, Guangdong Province. Customs officers and police in the province have jointly uncovered a smuggling case involving over 200,000 tons of solid waste. The waste, including various metals, has been imported from other countries since 2014 without a proper license, according to Shantou customs. Police caught 24 suspects in raids early yesterday morning in the cities of Shantou, Guangzhou, Foshan, and Qingyuan, seizing about 1,000 tons of scrap metals. China has banned 24 categories of solid waste imports since the end of 2017. The case is under further investigation. Xinhua
