Garbage Collection

In Japan, garbage is separated into combustible, non-combustible and recyclable items. Garbage collection days and hours depend on the area you live in.

In Nomi city, you have to use designated disposal bags when you separate and put out garbage. If you do not use the designated bags, your garbage will not be collected. You can buy the designated disposal bags at the Store in JAIST, or some other stores in Nomi city.

The garbage pickup points (gomi station) next to the JAIST Parking Lot (1st Area) and in front of the Student Housing bldg. 7 are only for residents in Student Housings. If you live in apartments, please take your garbage to the designated pickup point (gomi station) in the district.

For Student Housing resident's information, please refer to "How to deal with garbage (Internal Use Only) "
