no waste city

January 17, 2010

“Kamikatsu, a small arboreal village in south-west Japan, has begun the arduous process of becoming Japan’s first zero-waste community. By its target year of 2020, the village hopes to say sayonara to any incinerating or dumping. The experiment involves each household separating its waste into no fewer than 34 categories before it arrives at the village recycling center; a sort of Baskin Robbins of rubbish”
