Waste collector arrested for misusing his “product”

Date Posted: 2003-10-31

Illegal disposition of human waste is causing a stink in Ishigaki City. The owner of a human waste collecting company was arrested in Ishigaki City, when it was discovered that he had spread the waste his vacuum tank cars had collected on local farmers’ fields, instead of taking it to a disposal facility as required by law.

When questioned, the owner claimed that he spread the waste on local farmers’ fields at their request. “Farmers love to get this stuff as it makes everything grow faster. And besides, the city’s waste disposal facility is far away and they charge Y200 for each load I take there,” he explained to investigators.

Farmers may have liked the product, but their neighbors definitely did not. The whole affair came to light when they complained about the foul smell that emanated from nearby fields.

“Although this kind of human waste was used for fertilizer in the past, how many consumers would eat vegetables and fruit if they found out that they had been spread over repeatedly with this stuff,” one investigator said.
