Make sure to dispose of garbage correctly

 In the city, to recycle resources and preserve the environment, plastic packaging and recyclable items are treated as precious resources as they are sent through the recycling process. For efficient and effective recycling, and to protect the safety of those who work with the recycling process, it is necessary to separate the garbage properly. As many of us start a new job or new school in April, please take a fresh look at how to recycle your garbage.
Contact: Waste Policy Division - Phone: 7167-1140
■Please refer to the Garbage Separation and Disposal Calendar
 The Garbage Separation and Disposal Calendar is available at the Kashiwa City Hall and at "Kinrin" Community Centers. With advance notice, you can pick up up to 20 copies of the calendar. ※The Garbage Separation and Disposal Calendar may be downloaded from the Kashiwa City Hall homepage.
■Do not mix other materials or soiled items in the paper recycling
 Flyers with items such as free shampoo samples attached, and magazines left in plastic bags can interfere with the recycling process. Also, paper containers that are soiled with oil from foods such as cake or pizza cannot be recycled. Please put soiled paper out with the combustible garbage.
■Do not put medical waste items out with the regular garbage
 Waste items from at-home medical treatment such as syringes and intravenous tubes have been found mixed with the plastic container recycling. If needles, blood, and medications are mixed in with the recycling, it can not only lower the quality of the recycled product, but it also puts the recycling workers at risk for injury or infection. When you dispose of these medical items, please place a pick-up request with the medical facility from which they were distributed.
