How to Dispose of Household Garbage

最終更新日:2020年12月15日

Garbage separation

Tokushima City has implemented a garbage separating system that reduces household garbage and increases recycling as much as possible. Household waste should be divided into the following 8 categories. We appreciate your cooperation.

Household garbage
  Category Disposal schedule Note
1 Burnable Twice a week
  • For these 6 categories, days and sites for collection are designated according to residential districts. Please take your trash out before 8:30am on your collection day.
2 Non-burnable Once every 4 weeks on Wed
3 Plastic (mark) garbage Once every 2 weeks on Wed
4 Cans, glass bottles, PET (plastic) bottles Every two weeks
5 Newspapers Once every 4 weeks
6 Magazines, cardboard, cartons Once every 4 weeks
7 Over-sized garbage Arranged by mailing a request postcard or online application
  • Request postcards for over-sized garbage collection are available at our Environmental Policy Division, Tobu/Seibu garbage disposal plants, or branch offices of city offices.
8 Batteries & mercury thermometers

Put these items in a clear plastic bag and take it out on your over-sized collection day.

  • Batteries are also collected at the recycle boxes set up in some municipal facilities by Tokushima City.

How to dispose of lighters, spray-cans and gas canisters

These items might cause fires in garbage collection cars. Please make sure to empty and puncture them before discarding them. Additionally, when disposing of these items, discard each item in specifically separated garbage bags (bag with only lighters, bag with only spray cans/gas canisters) and don’t mix these items in bags with other non-burnable garbage. (Please note you can only dispose of up to 5 lighters at once.)

Garbage bags

When disposing of burnable garbage, nonburnable garbage, plastic (mark) garbage, and cans, glass bottles, and PET (plastic) bottles, please use a transparent or semi-transparent 45 liter plastic bag.

  • Plastic bags must be clear enough to allow the inside items to be seen clearly. (If the contents cannot be viewed through the garbage bag, then that bag will not be collected.)
  • As long as it is a transparent or semi-transparent plastic bag, the color and brand don’t matter.
  • Bags must be 45 liters or less.
  • Bags are available at supermarkets, grocery stores, and so on. (Plastic shopping bags from supermarkets etc. can be used as long as they are transparent.)
  • Food scraps and wastes which you don’t want people to see, can be wrapped in paper or placed in a small non-transparent bag, and then contained together in a transparent bag.
  • Please do not double-bag in disposing of plastic (mark) garbage and cans, glass bottles, and PET (plastic) bottles.

Notes

  • Trash that is not properly separated or that is taken out on the wrong day will not be collected.
  • Neighborhood associations and children’s groups sometimes collect recyclable items, such as newspaper and magazines. Please take advantage of these opportunities!
  • Please return returnable bottles such as beer bottles, milk bottles, and 1800cc-sized bottles for alcohol or vinegar, to the store where they were purchased whenever possible
