China's top environmental watchdog said it will work with its European Union counterparts to crack down on smuggling of waste to China, state media reported. The State Environmental Protection Administration (SEPA) made the comments after Britain's Sky News TV reported that plastic waste from the UK was being dumped in a remote village in southern China. Several banned types of plastic waste were found in the village after an investigation by SEPA. China does not allow waste that cannot be recycled as raw materials or treated harmlessly to be imported, SEPA said.
