The Tokyo metropolitan government has agreed to take 1,000 tons of debris next month from disaster-stricken Iwate Prefecture’s Miyako City.
According to a report on NTV, Tokyo will sign a formal cooperation agreement with Iwate Prefecture later Friday. Officials are calling for Tokyo waste disposal companies to help dispose of the mostly wood and metal debris to be picked up in October.
Officials with knowledge of the agreement say the debris will be measured for radiation on-site before being transported by rail to Tokyo, where it will be tested a second time, NTV said. The Tokyo government says that all test results will be fully disclosed to the public.© Japan Today
