Garbage Bags Distributed To Halloween Partygoers


Garbage bags distributed to Halloween partygoersTokyo city officials say they will give out garbage bags to revelers for Halloween celebrations at the end of October.
300,000 garbage bags have been printed with pumpkin ghosts to encourage people to take their garbage with them rather than discard it in the streets.

The bags will be distributed on October 30th and 31st at four locations including Shibuya and Roppongi, and at related events in Tokyo.
Last year, people in Halloween costumes crowded the area around Shibuya Station in central Tokyo. They left behind piles of garbage including pieces of costumes and food containers.
