Guidelines tightened on scrapping tobacco

Sep 22, 2011-China’s Chongqing City Tobacco Monopoly Administration has
taken steps to tighten control over waste leaf tobacco, according to a
Tobacco China Online story.

One of the steps being taken is aimed at ensuring the destruction of waste
tobacco to prevent its being illegally traded.

In a notice issued recently, Chongqing City Tobacco Co said that no
enterprise or individual would be allowed to provide enterprises outside the
[official] tobacco industry with waste leaf in any form.

All discarded tobacco that cannot be recycled will have to be scrapped.

And discarded tobacco destined for scrapping will have to be rendered
unusable before being transported away from tobacco manufacturing
