Burnable, non-burnable, paper, glass--figuring out how to sort trash in Okinawa can definitely be a challenge. 
 
Here's a chart you can use as a reminder on how to sort your waste if you live in Yomitan. 
 
Please note that trash should be placed outside on the day of collection before 08:30 hrs. 
 
Make sure you double check with your housing agency what days each category is collected--it will vary from house to house.
