This system is named as “eco-bin”, a combination of two words (“eco-logical”+ “bin” in Japanese which connotes delivering parcels). It is established to properly collect “clean-up household items” including small home appliances, metals and used papers, directly from household consumers. It started, in July 2015, with the opening of a station in Okayama City. With a harmonized facility and user friendly services by on-site staff, this system provides users with peace of mind, informing them of malpractice in the recycling market as well as promoting them to participate in proper recycling.
