Around 1,500 people visit an industrial waste treatment facility in central Japan each year to see up close how the operator can recycle more than 99 percent of the solid garbage it receives from a variety of manufacturers and municipalities.

Nakadai Co., which covers the Kanto region, accepts 60 tons of waste each day, which it recycles and resells to about 50 customers. The waste includes wooden materials, plastics, cardboard boxes, personal computers, auto parts and fluorescent lamps.
