Daily-life waste

Recyclability and hazardousness are the two important points when considering the separation of daily-life wastes. In addition, if the waste is regulated by a specific law or ordinance, we must follow the law/ordinance.

Separation rules vary by campuses. Please refer to the rule on your campus. For details on the waste-collection point or any local rules please consult EHS office at your faculty/school. Special wastes such as bulky waste or waste that contains hazardous substance need different routes for disposal. Please refer to special waste.
