How Careful Is Japan's Waste Recycling?

I often hear news reports that after a game, the Japanese team ’s locker room was spotlessly clean, and there were always people in the Japanese auditorium who took away the paper peels scattered on the seats, the aisles and other garbage , And then lamented the high quality of the Japanese. In fact, these things are very common in Japan and can almost be taken for granted, so don't be too surprised. Also, most of my friends who have been to Japan know that the streets of Tokyo are very clean, but they ca n’t see the peel box. It ’s strange. How did they do it? It's very simple. Everyone goes out with a garbage bag, and the garbage they produce is taken home for disposal.

Today let’s briefly talk about some "common sense" about garbage in Japan.


Garbage classification


Japanese garbage can be roughly divided into four categories: combustible garbage, non-combustible garbage, resource garbage and coarse garbage.



It depends on the way they are treated.


Combustible garbage refers to the garbage that can be burned and treated because of the perishability of fresh fruits such as peel and paper scraps;


Non combustible waste is waste plastic, waste steel products, etc;


Resource waste is recyclable waste, in fact, there are many kinds of subdivision.


This is why there are only four kinds of garbage classification in some places, and as many as 89 kinds of garbage classification in some places. The redundant classification is to subdivide these recyclable resource garbage. For example: books, newspapers, glass bottles, aluminum cans, steel cans, batteries, light bulbs and so on.


Coarse garbage is large garbage such as household appliances, furniture, bicycles and cars.



Garbage collection and waste station



Japan's garbage is recycled according to the schedule every day. For example, collect combustible garbage on Monday , Wednesday and Friday, non combustible garbage in the second four years, and resource garbage on Saturday.



The garbage dumps are divided into large garbage dumps and small garbage dumps. Large apartments generally have large garbage rooms, where various types of garbage are placed in a well-organized manner.


The small garbage storage place is generally a designated open space of a few square meters on the side of the road. Because of its small area, it can only be placed on the designated garbage collection day and the selected types of garbage will be stacked on that day. If it is not placed according to the specified category, it will be pasted caveat.



Both combustible and non-combustible garbage must be placed in a uniform garbage bag in a certain area. These garbage bags are cheap but need to be purchased.



Resource garbage needs to be organized and packed. The garbage stations in good condition are classified very finely. For example, for a cola bottle, we all develop the habit. Put the bottle cap in one place, peel off the plastic sticker as combustible trash, and put the bottle in another place. The advantage of neat stacking is that it is easy to recycle and use, so that other people can use it directly. Such as bundles of comic books. When I first arrived in Japan, I often took these resources (manga) directly home to read.




Garbage collection


Some garbage is to be charged, such as coarse garbage. They need to call the recycling companies, they send cars to pull them. Including home appliances, furniture, bicycles, toy cars, and cars. Spend money to buy a garbage disposal roll and stick the ticket according to the type.



Charges are not cheap. For example, throwing a refrigerator costs 3000-4000 yen (180-240rmb), so there are also rag collectors in Japan. However, they are different from those in China. You can't get money from a rag collector when you give him old appliances. In turn, you have to give him money!! But because it's cheaper than the national recycling fee, they still have a market.


The most typical one is to throw a car. It costs about 20000 yen (about 1200RMB) to throw a household car. So there used to be a light crime in Japan - car abandonment. But now the Japanese government has filled in this loophole. When buying a car, it must buy the garbage ticket of 20000 yen which is thrown at the car first. The garbage ticket of the car follows the car for a lifetime, where the car is transferred, and where the garbage ticket follows.



Environmental education and environmental protection system


Japan does not litter, mainly due to solid environmental education and strict environmental protection system.


There is no content in the Japanese elementary school code that loves the motherland and the people. The core content is that children are required to abide by the rules and not cause trouble for others. One of the rules is to not litter and how to throw garbage. Adults also need to be educated. Every time they move to a new place, whether it is a landlord or a renter, first tell you how to throw garbage in this place. It seems that knowing how to throw garbage is the most basic condition for a qualified Japanese.


Then there is a complete garbage disposal system and treatment facilities. Although there are no peel bins on the street, a few steps away from the residential area is a garbage storage point. In front of the vending machine, there are definitely garbage bins in specific places such as stations. The most important thing is the garbage management system and the large group of executives in each residential area.


Of course, Japan's waste treatment technology and equipment are also very advanced.
