China is to build a huge center to recycle wastes from Russia and Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) in a city that borders the two countries, local authorities said Wednesday.

Northeast China's Jilin Province has approved the recycling center in Hunchun City. It will cover 135 hectares of land and the facility's combined floor space will top 500,000 square meters, said an official with the publicity department of Hunchun City Government.

The center is expected to recycle nearly three million tonnes of scrap machines, cables, appliances, vehicles, mobile phones, batteries, plastics and other wastes each year.

The project is expected to create nearly 10,000 jobs, and its annual output value will reach 15 billion yuan (2.21 billion U.S. dollars) after it becomes operational, said the spokesman.

The spokesman failed to disclose other details regarding construction of the center.
