China notified the World Trade Organization (WTO) on Tuesday that it would stop accepting shipments of rubbish such as waste plastic and paper as part of a campaign against "foreign garbage".

This ban could endanger nearly 1 million TEU of all US Exports according to information from PIERS.

The import ban, which will enter into force by the end of 2017, will also cover slag from steelmaking, and many kinds of waste wool, ash, cotton and yarn.

"We found that large amounts of dirty wastes or even hazardous wastes are mixed in the solid waste that can be used as raw materials. This polluted China's environment seriously," China's WTO filing said.

"To protect China's environmental interests and people's health, we urgently adjust the imported solid wastes list, and forbid the import of solid wastes that are highly polluted."

China is a major importer of waste. Last year it imported 7.3 million tonnes of waste plastics, valued at $3.7 billion, accounting for 56 percent of world imports.

Apart from Hong Kong, the biggest sources of that plastic waste were Japan and the United States, which accounted for roughly 10 percent of the volume each, according to data from the International Trade Centre, a United Nations-WTO joint venture.

The same two countries are also the main sources of scrap paper going to China each year, accounting for half of the almost $1 billion business between them.

China's speedy industrial development has seen it struggling to regulate waste disposal, leading to toxic waterways and cities blanketed in smog.

The WTO will begin deliberations on whether or not the ban is allowable under WTO rules.

Maersk to waive detention, demurrage fees stemming from Petya attack.

The world’s biggest container line, Maersk Line A/S, is waiving demurrage and detention fees accrued by customers during the period when a system outage caused by the Petya cyber attack impacted its ability to release cargo, the company said in a statement Wednesday.

In most places, this period covers June 27 through July 9, but there may be local variations based on when the containers were made available for import release, Maersk said.

Additionally, Maersk says its delivery process for imports continues to be operational, but the company has acknowledged that the experience is slow in some locations due to manual processing as a result of the Petya cybersecurity attack in late June.
