Preparation for Categorized Garbage Collection

Preparation for Categorized Garbage Collection

Korea has a categorized garbage collection system in place in order to reduce the amount of general waste and facilitate the disposal of recyclable wastes. The system also in turn levies a graded charge on the amount of waste each individual disposes.

Penalties

Various penalties are administered for any violations when it comes to proper garbage disposal. Penalties in general vary from district to district, but all districts increase penalties with each instance of disposing food wastes with general waste. Note that garbage disposal, no matter what type being discharged, must always be completed after sunset in a designated area for disposal.
