Progress of Disposal of Disaster Waste Directly Governed by the National Government in Designated Areas in Fukushima Prefecture
Waste within the Management Areas in Fukushima Prefecture has been disposed of based on the Plan on Waste within the Management Areas, which was revised in December 2013.
Such waste, which includes tsunami rubble, debris of damaged houses, and waste from houses after cleaning-up, has been transported sequentially to Temporary Storage Sites. As of the end of December 2020, a total of approx. 2.93 million tons had already been transported. Transported waste is recycled as much as possible.
It was decided to incinerate inflammable waste to reduce volume at Temporary Incineration Facilities constructed at 11 locations in nine municipalities. As of the end of December 2020, six such facilities were in operation and waste is being steadily incinerated.
