Why there is no dumpster or garbage collector in Japan?
Each week trash are collected from the street by hand, isn't it better to collect it with a dump truck? Think about the health of the worker and the cost to hire them.
Where I live, the streets are very narrow and there are many very tight corners. I've seen big trash collecting trucks that go to the schools and businesses. But a lot of the residential areas would be too difficult for a big truck to get around. So those areas require small trucks. I also think that maybe a big dumpster makes it too easy to throw away anything. Japan doesn't have much room for dumps, so there's a need to be much more careful with waste disposal. That's just a guess though.
