This is the crazy amount of rules we were given in our place for disposing of our rubbish. First off we got the 8 page document but after some complaints we were given the sheet. That was kinda good since half the dates on the original document were wrong so no wonder we were putting things out on the wrong day.
Now I don't mind recycling, even if it gross. If there's a little thing I can do to make a difference in the long run then fine I don't mind. I spent all of last year separating my food waste leading to a number of what I can only describe as the rankest experiences of my life. My issues with it in Japan are many layered. The first layer of which are public bins that seem like they are separated but in fact are NOT. Wtf why would you bother pretending to be sorting properly when your aren't? I also don't like the double standard in our neighbourhood. A lot of people complain about how we do things because we're the 'gaijin house' but tbh we're just following the same rules as them. We got complaints about putting the rubbish out the night before....I've seen my neighbours put there's out at noon the day before. Gah!
(This rant is mainly due to it being my day to do the rubbish ¬¬ lol. More actually fun/interesting posts to come I promise)
