Garbage Changes - Phase 2

At the beginning of the year, the garbage rules for our town changed – I explained what I knew about it here.  On the 1st of April, phase 2 of the changes start, where we have to pay for each bag of trash.  Last week, we found this in our box, with a sample bag for burnable and one for non-burnable trash.  We’ll have to start paying 300 yen for non-burnable trash bags and 80 yen for burnable trash. I should probably have someone translate this paper for me, so I can be sure to follow all the trash rules.


  1. Ooooo, a new challenge! At least the colors and presentation are artsy, just kidding. Happy Friday!

  2. Interesting....this could be a great way to curb modern throw away tendencies! Can't see peopl just throwing stuff away if they have to pay for it!
