Definitely Back in Japan #32: Mountain of Recyclables

Definitely Back in Japan #32: a mountain of aluminum cans and plastic bottles—it’s the weekly recyclable trash collection day.

In Honolulu, collecting cans and bottles is an important source of income for homeless people since each can/bottle is worth $0.05 for its deposit redemption value. Thus, cans and bottles placed outside like this would disappear within minutes!

日本ならではの風景: 毎週のリサイクルの山。ホノルルでは、一個は$0.05の価値があるのでホームレスの方々にとって大事な収入源です。こんなに外に出したら、数分以内に持って行かれちゃう!
