VietNamNet Bridge – A Japanese firm on Wednesday was found burying its waste right on the factory premises in Ho Chi Minh City.
The team found that around 500 square meters of the floor at the warehouse and rolling factory of the D-L International Ltd., which produces steel pipes, was new.
They dug the place up and found that dust produced during the company’s production was mixed with mud and buried there. The company has confessed to its wrongdoing, they said.
They also found that in many other places, waste that smelled like ammonia had been piled up on the floor and covered with canvas.
Waste samples were taken for further tests before action is taken against the company for its wrongdoing, the environmental police said.
