Plan ahead for garbage disposal when moving


Spring is a time when a lot of people move to another area. Check the appropriate disposal method for your unwanted items, and dispose of them in the proper manner. Particularly in the case of non-burnable garbage and large-sized garbage, of which collection takes place only once a month, it is important to confirm the collection date, and put out your garbage in a planned manner, a little at a time, so as not to have too large an amount of garbage at one collection area on a given date.

◆Large-sized garbage (items exceeding 30cm x 30cm x 30cm)

※Fee required
・By prior request, at least 7 days in advance of collection day

① To request collection, call the Large Waste Service Center (service in Japanese)

② Purchase large-sized garbage collection payment certificates (stickers).

These can be purchased at convenience stores and supermarkets in the city. Payment certificates are non-refundable.

③ Affix the collection payment certificate with your collection number and name on it to the large-sized item in a spot where it can be easily seen, and put out the item by 8:00 on collection day.
