China's environment watchdog targets waste as pollution battle escalates
China plans to carry out nationwide inspections targeting the illegal transfer and dumping of waste that damages water resources and soil, the environmental watchdog said on May 11 as Beijing launches a new front in its years-long war on pollution. News of the crackdown came as mayors for seven cities were summoned to a meeting at the Ministry of Ecology and Environment (MEE) in Beijing to account for their cities' failure to tackle the problem following recent inspections.
