Waste containers to be sent back

18 October, 2020

After a year-long court process, the Court of Appeal last week ordered the that the 243 waste containers imported from the UK be sent back.

The Court also called on the authorities to take legal action against the companies involved in this illegal import. These waste containers were imported by Ceylon Metal Processing (Pvt) Ltd in 2017 and found at the Hayley’s hub operation in the Katunayake FTZ and at the CICT terminal in the Colombo Harbour. The UK exporter Vanguard is owned by the brother of the Sri Lankan importer.
