Sorting trash in Japan




Sorting trash is serious business in Japan. I heard that if you didn't sort your trash properly, the day's trash might end up back at your doorstep.

The first two pictures details the government's official classification of trash. If you ask me, I'd say that it's too darn complicated. The third picture shows our "trash calendar," meaning that you are only allowed to throw a certain type of trash (before 8 am) that certain day.

I'm still trying to sort my trash so I haven't thrown any of my trash yet... @@
