JAPAN ZERO WASTE 5981.jpg

A resident disposes of brown bottles at the waste disposal site in central Kamikatsu Town in Shikoku, Japan. The town, whose residents number just over 2,000 people, has implemented a waste recycling policy that aims at eliminating waste entirely within the next 12 years and employs retired local residents to care for the waste disposal center. Waste must be divided up into 34 categories.
