Japan to Help Fund Collection, Disposal Costs of Ocean Plastic Waste

SEATTLE (Waste 360): Japan’s government announced that it is planning on aiding the collection and disposal of plastic waste from the ocean that has been picked up by fishing vessels.

Star Advertiser reports that the Fisheries Agency and the Environment Ministry plan to extend subsidies, originally designated specifically for trash that washes ashore, to waste collected by fishing vessels. Funding for the subsidies is expected to be about 3.5 billion yen (roughly $27.7 million). Municipalities that dispose of the garbage are expected to shoulder about 6 percent of the cost, according to the report.
