The Bureau of Customs (BOC) questioned the arrival of bags of garbage from South Korea to Mindanao International Container Terminal.

According to records obtained by BOC’s Customs Intelligence and Investigation Service, the bags, which arrived in July, are supposed to contain plastic synthetic flakes which will be used to make plastic pellets.

Upon checking, however, the bags contained different types of garbage items such as plastic and wood, reported ABS-CBN.

Aside from the misdeclaration of the shipment, BOC also discovered that the shipment process also lacked required documents.

“Iyan ang isa sa mga issues. Paano siya napapasok at hindi pa naman settled and duties at taxes,” port collector in Mindanao International Container Terminal, John Simon, said.

The document states that a Korean company, named Verde Soko Philippine Industrial Corporation, served as the shipment’s consignee.

An official from the company refused to give any comment on the issue, but explained that a shredding equipment is set to arrive in the country in 2019.
