My cheap electric fan which I bought three years ago got out of order. It did not recover. So I threw it out as a big trash. We cannot dump a big size trash (over 30cm x 30cm) as a daily garbage. In order to dump a big trash, I have to pay fees to the local office. The local office trash collector comes to my house to pick up a trash, if I ask it. In the case of electric fan, the disposal charge is 300 yen ($2.83 €2.19). The trash collector comes to houses in the morning.
We can ask the local office to pick up oversized trashes via the internet or a phone call.
