Zhejiang Province has discovered more than 1,000 tons of Japan imported radioactive scrap metal in Ningbo Harbor.

An investigation found the shipments' content of CS-137, a dangerous radioactive chemical element, is more than double the regulated limit in China. The scrap metal departed from Port of Chiba, about 230 kilometers away from Fukushima, where Japan suffered from a nuclear meltdown last year following a 9 magnitude earthquake.

Ningbo customs department said it will hand over the scrap metal to the anti-smuggling department to be returned to Japan. More than 8,500 tons of dangerously high radioactive scrap metal has been discovered in Ningbo Harbor since Japan's earthquake.
