Zero Waste Center
Kamikatsu-cho Zero Waste Center
The Zero Waste Center is the new hub for zero waste being promoted by Kamikatsu-cho.

In 2003, Kamikatsu-cho set the goal at zero incineration and landfill for garbage disposed in the town, and established the first Zero Waste Declaration in Japan. Residents brought their garbage to a single garbage pickup area (the former Gomi Station (Garbage collection center)) and sorted it as much as possible trying to turn it into resources. As a result, the recycling rate exceeded 80%. We have been visited by inspection teams and reporters not only from Japan but also from overseas countries.

In April 2020, the former Gomi Station was renovated and established as the Kamikatsu-cho Zero Waste Center. We aim to improve residents’ convenience and provide a facility for visitors from outside the town to learn about the zero waste philosophy and spread the idea worldwide.
