Holiday Garbage Schedule

Okay, this is not the sexiest of topics, but I think it’s important for people to know about this.

The last day for collecting burnable garbage for this year is December 28 for the north and south districts, and December 29 for the east, west, and special districts. There will be no garbage collection until January 1 in any district. Please do not put your garbage out during the collection holiday.

The last day for collecting large items (粗大ごみ) is December 15 for the north district, December 20 for the east and special districts, December 22 for the south district, and December 27 for the west district. However, there is a procedure to follow when throwing out large items, so you will have to have made a reservation in advance in order to be able to put large items out on these days. There is a limit to how much they can collect in one day, so if you know you will be throwing something large out, be sure to make a reservation well in advance.

It is possible to take some kinds of garbage directly to the Clean Center. However, the Center closes on December 29 at 4:30pm and doesn’t open again until January 3 at 8:30am.
