Please sort recyclables and waste properly by type, and place it at collection points by 8am on the designated collection day or 7:30am in areas where garbage is collected three times a week.

They should be separated into the following 5 categories: recyclable plastics, recyclables (used paper, bottles, cans and PET bottles), burnable waste, non-burnable waste, and large-sized waste.

The collection days and times, collection places, and disposal rules differ for each category.

Please follow the rules for recyclables and waste disposal, so all city residents can live comfortably.
