Eight containers seized in Surabaya should contain clean paper scraps, but also contain hazardous materials and household waste including plastic bottles and sanitary pads, disposable diapers, electronic waste and beverage cans, East Timor’s customs agency spokesman told AFP.

Following the inspection, the Indonesian environmental ministry advised the residue in the original export, the agency said in a separate statement yesterday.

“This move is aimed at protecting the public and the environment of Indonesia, especially East Java from B3 garbage which refers to harmful and toxic substances.”

According to the authorities, the remittance was sent to Indonesia by Oceanic Multitrading Australia company assisted by PT MDI, Indonesia.

Malaysia has recently repatriated 450 tonnes of imported plastic garbage to home countries including Australia, Bangladesh, Canada, China, Japan, Saudi Arabia and the United States.
