DA NANG (VNS)— The central city's People's Committee fined Keyhinge Toys Company VND100 million (US$4,800) for violating environment regulations at Hoa Khanh industrial Park in Lien Chieu district.
The wholly foreign-invested toy producer did not distinguish its hazardous waste from other common rubbish.
The company had also failed to arrange safe storage and packaging for the waste before dumping.
Meanwhile, the People's Committee in northern Phu Tho Province moved to penalise the Thang Long International JSC for releasing untreated exhaust fumes into the atmosphere well above the permitted limit.
The fine is said to be VND42 million ($2,000). . — VNS
