When you travel to Japan, you will probably see trash cans lined up as shown in the picture. In Japan, trash cans are divided into several types such as burnable trash, plastic, plastic bottles, cans, and bottles, and you are expected to separate them and throw them away.

For example, trash cans at fast food restaurants and coffee shops are often divided into burnable trash and plastic. When throwing away disposable containers, you must separate them by material: paper cups and paper straws are burnable trash, while plastic lids and plastic straws are plastic.
