Provinces and cities along the Yangtze River should strengthen dialogue and cooperation to stop the dumping of solid waste and protect the river from pollution, an environmental official in Anhui province said.

"The Yangtze River Delta region - including Anhui, Jiangsu and Zhejiang provinces and Shanghai municipality - is working on new mechanisms to prevent the illegal practice," said Luo Hong, deputy head of Anhui's environmental protection department.

He said that from 2015 to 2017 Anhui had investigated 42 cases in which a total of 27,200 metric tons of solid waste from outside the province had been dumped along the Yangtze inside Anhui.
