An English video “How to Dispose of Bulky Waste” has been made (英語版「粗大ごみの捨て方」動画を作りました)

Do you know how to dispose of bulky waste?
In Japan, the way in which bulky waste is disposed varies by local government.
Many non-Japanese residents may feel this process to be difficult as there are many waste disposal rules in Japan which are different compared to their home countries.
The Multicultural Center, which handles consultations related to daily life from non-Japanese residents, has a particularly large amount of consultations related to the disposal of bulky waste.

Due to these difficulties, two City of Sendai coordinators for international relations (※) created a new video「Guide on How to Dispose of Bulky Waste In Sendai City (粗大ごみの捨て方) (14 minutes・entirely in English)」which summarizes important points on how to dispose of bulky waste.
The video can be viewed on the Sendai Tube channel (link to external site). Please have a look!
