Wipe out illegal dumping and littering! May is Illegal Dumping Awareness Month (不法投棄やポイ捨てをなくそう! ~5月は不法投棄防止強調月間です~)

2020.04.28

dumped_223x200.jpgIllegal dumping is a crime.
Illegal dumping will incur a prison sentence of 5 years or a fine of 10 million yen, or both.
The recycling of appliances such as TVs and washing machines is mandatory, so they cannot be disposed of as Large-Sized Garbage (粗大ごみ).
If you are unsure how to dispose of an appliance appropriately, please check the Nagoya City Garbage Reduction and Recycling Guide on the City of Nagoya website (see below), or inquire at the Environmental Works office of the ward in which you live. You can also look up how to separate garbage and recyclables in the City of Nagoya using the ThreeR (さんあ~る) smartphone app [iOs] [Android].
Also remember that littering and leaving empty cans, cigarette butts, PET bottles, etc. in the street, in parks and other public places is prohibited. Don't just assume that someone else is going to deal with your litter for you; and if there is no bin, take your waste home.
