Dalian customs in northeastern Liaoning province said it has refused to allow 23.71 tons of solid waste into the country.
According to the customs, a shipment labeled "leather scrap" had not been declared at the customs and its recipient could not be reached.
Officers at Dayaowan Customs later found it contained solid waste prohibited from import under Chinese law.
To avoid waste of port resources and pollution, the customs Wednesday ordered it be sent back to where it originated and said it would monitor the cargo during its return journey.
Dayaowan Customs has refused 21 shipments of solid waste, totaling 3,895.6 tons this year.
