Putting out Garbage and Recycling

  • Both burnable and non-burnable garbage have to go into official city garbage bags. If they're not in an official bag, they won't be picked up. If your garbage won't fit into the largest bags, please bring it directly to Tanko Regional Sanitation Center (see below) or contact a licensed collection contractor.

  • Burnable garbage bags have red lettering, and unburnable garbage bags have blue lettering. They come in two sizes, large (大) and small (小) for 4 types of bags in total. Official garbage bags are readily available at supermarkets or convenience stores.

  • Recyclables do not have official bags, so just take recycling to the recycling station and put it in the appropriate container or net. Please bundle paper recycling with string.

  • Be sure to put out (burnable and non-burnable) garbage and recycling at the proper time for your area. The schedule can change sometimes (especially around major holidays) so please keep aware of that.

About Garbage Stations / Recycling Stations

  • Please put out burnable and non-burnable garbage plus weekday recycling at your local garbage station. If you have questions about which garbage station you're supposed to use, please check with your neighborhood association or at the sanitation department at city hall (main or a local branch office.)

  • Managing the station is the community's responsibility, so please be sure to keep it tidy.

  • Businesses, hospitals, and similar cannot use regular garbage stations; please bring it directly to the Tanko Regional Sanitation Center (see above) or contact a licensed collection contractor.

Rules for Various Kinds of Burnables

  • Kitchen waste/raw garbage

    • Please drain before placing with burnables.

  • Non-recyclable paper

    • Thermal paper (as in receipts), carbon paper, carbonless copy paper, wax paper, oil paper, laminated paper, sticker paper, sublimation transfer paper (textile paper/iron print paper), shredded paper, pull-open mail cards, disposable diapers, dirty/scrap paper, other paper that can't be recycled goes in burnables.

  • Hard-to-clean (squeezable) plastic containers

    • Mayonnaise, ketchup, wasabi, other condiments, toothpaste, and similar go in burnables.

  • Branches/sticks from yardwork

    • May be placed in an official garbage bag or tied up with twine and placed in a garbage station outside of a bag. Bundles under 30 cm in diameter, and have no branches thicker than 10 cm or longer than 50 cm. Smaller branches, leaves, and similar should go in a regular garbage bag. Please don't tie up branches with wire or anything made of metal.

  • Other

    • Things made of leather, rubber, plastic not used in containers, or aluminum foil go in burnables.

Rules for Various Kinds of Non-burnables

  • Home electronics (that aren't taken by home electronic recycling/computer recycling) and stove ranges

    • Place in an official non-burnable garbage bag and put it out on the appropriate day. Cut the cord as close as possible and put it out in non-burnables too. For garbage that won't fit in a regulation bag, bring directly to the Tanko Regional Sanitation Center (see above) or contact a licensed collection contractor.

  • Other

    • Crockery, glass, and metals that can't be recycled go in non-burnables. Things made of leather, rubber, plastic not used in containers, or aluminum foil go in burnables.

How to Recycle

Paper products: Includes newspapers, magazines, cardboard boxes, paper cartons, and other paper (paper packaging)

  • Sort the above 5 by type, bind with string, and dispose. Paper packaging may be placed in a paper bag for disposal.

  • Mail advertisements go with newspaper.

  • Thermal paper (as in receipts), carbon paper, carbonless copy paper, wax paper, oil paper, laminated paper, sticker paper, sublimation transfer paper (textile paper / iron print paper), shredded paper, pull-open mail cards, disposable diapers, dirty/scrap paper, and other similar paper cannot be recycled, so please place them with burnable garbage.

Metals: Includes aluminum/steel cans and scrap metal

  • Separate aluminum and steel cans, and place directly in the relevant receptacle.

  • Food/drink cans, nori cans, pet food cans, powdered milk cans, and similar are intended for recycling.

    ※ 18-liter cans, paint cans, and spray cans must be all used up and have a hole punctured in them before disposal as non-burnable garbage.

  • Rinse before recycling

  • Please don't crush cans

Scrap metal (Koromogawa only)

  • Place directly in the relevant receptacle at the recycling station.

Bottles: Includes clear bottles, brown bottles, and bottles of other colors

  • Rinse before recycling

  • Separate by color and place directly in the relevant receptacle.

※ Remove recyclables from the bag you brought them in, and place in the collection net.

※ Mayonnaise, ketchup, wasabi, other condiments, toothpaste, and similar hard-to-clean containers go in burnables.

※ Plastic buckets, coat hangers, videotapes, Mds/Cds/Dvds, etc. are not containers or packaging; they are not recyclable plastic and so they go in burnables.

About Electronics

Electrical appliances like Tvs, computers, refrigerators, washing machines, and air conditioners have to be recycled, but the way you can do this and how much it costs depends on the appliance and the maker. However, Oshu has collection boxes for the following small appliances at city hall, general branch offices, and all community centers (地区センター) in the city:

Cell phones/PHS、phones/fax machines、portable radios, digital cameras, video cameras, IC recorders, portable music players, portable DVD/Bd players, e-books, calculators, electronic blood pressure meters, stationary and handheld game players, car audiovisual and information devices (car navigation, audio equipment, etc), remote controls, AC adapters, accessories like chargers, etc.

The appliance will have to fit into the collection box openings (15 centimeter high x 25 centimeter wide).

Look for the green box that looks like this:

Why should I follow the rules for where and when to put out garbage?

Good question! In Japan, people in the local neighborhood association (your neighbors) all work together to maintain the area, including garbage and recycling stations. When you leave garbage or recycling out on the wrong day, or don't sort properly, the contractor in charge of collection won't collect it, and whoever is in charge of garbage and recycling (again, one of your neighbors) will have to clean it up themselves.

Putting out garbage etc. in another station (not the one for the place you live in) also causes problems. Extra, unanticipated garbage in another station could cause overflow and attract crows, for example.
