As part of its activities, the information center sponsors a bilingual discussion group the second Wednesday of every month from 2 to 4 pm, with invited guests giving a presentation from their area of expertise or experience. The guest for January is Mr. Yoshio Noguchi, the head of the city planning office for garbage collection.
As we begin a new year, with all our various "New Year's Resolutions", thinking about the future of our environment is very important. Especially since the city has instituted a new garbage collection process since November and next spring will open the new "Chikunan Clean Center", this is a good opportunity to ask questions about the system and to give your input concerning what needs to be done. Likewise, if you have some ideas concerning how to recycle items or other things related to ecology and the environment you would like to share, this is a good opportunity to do so.
Everyone is welcome, and you can come and go as you please. Complimentary snacks along with tea and coffee are also served. So come out and join us.
