Court Case Highlights China’s Household Waste Woes
When a “spectacularly long” belt of household garbage appeared along a section of the Yangzte River in eastern Jiangsu province in late 2016, local residents knew someone was doing something illegal.
They alerted the maritime safety administration of Taicang, a port city in the Yangtze River Delta about 56 kilometers (35 miles) northwest of Shanghai, which launched an investigation. On Dec. 18, 2016, they caught workers on board a small freight vessel dumping waste into the river and from there tracked down who they believed was one of the perpetrators — Zhu Daocheng.
