The complexity of garbage sorting in Japan | Updated: 2019-06-25 13:59

Editor's Note: In Japan's Kamikatsu, sorting rubbish isn't that straightforward. Residents face a mind-boggling 45 separate categories for their garbage as the town aims to be "zero-waste" by 2020.

They place dozens of boxes in each category of the garbage disposal facilities. People need to put garbage into correct containers if different parts of an item belong to different categories.
