Garbage Pickup Schedule- Seoul

Garbage Pickup Schedule- S...

Each of the 'gu' (municipality) offices in Seoul has a schedule of times when people should be putting out their garbage. Non-compliance can result in a fine of up to W300,000. To be frank, the fines are not regularly imposed and locals don't always follow the rules. That said, there can be neighbourhood pressure put on residents to not put their garbage out too early - especially since everything goes out in bags and not in receptacles that would keep animals from scavenging.
