This fairly large drink vending machine has a large gray box next to it. The green sign says this is a 'Recycling Box' and asks for cooperation in separating the used containers. The holes are labeled, on the left is a hole for cans and on the right one for PET bottles. There has been a push by the government to increase the amount of recycling, but it is different in different cities. For example, we have to separate our trash into burnables, cans, PET bottles, glass, and dead batteries. Also there is a special collection for large items. Sendai had more categories, even milk cartons were collect separately.
