We sort out this volume of garbage in Kamikatsu-cho.
Furthermore, our approach stems from thinking about how to make processing low-cost.
However, it is not that we wish to boast about the extent of sorting we do.
An ideal society is one where resources can be effectively
reused without having to do such troublesome things.
The local residents themselves take initiative in what we are able to do now.
That is the pride of Kamikatsu-cho.
While this is a bother, the Gomi Station is not closed apart from during the New Year period. It also
has the merit of disposing off any type of garbage at any time of your convenience.
All garbage within the town is brought here.
We will introduce the 13 types and 45 categories of
waste segregation used by Kamikatsu-cho.
The numbers from 1 to 13 are the large types of categories
Listed below are 45 categories of items to be sorted out.
