○ The core of this policy was the introduction of a new effective system which citizens place garbage in designated areas rather than door-to-door garbage truck collection so that the downtown area can be kept clean.
○ The rain shelter, which leaves 100m of space in every direction, was installed and the collection containers for garbage, recyclables, and food waste were arranged, Then, CCTV, an odor reduction facility, and an electric installation were installed to have an on-site collect system and it was named “Clean House”.
○ From 2004-2005, the Clean House project had a period of internal administrative investigation, involving the stages of program design, review, and announcement. Then, in 2006, 32 facilities were initially installed as a test operation at Sam-do 1 dong, home to 15,000 people.
○ 730 places throughout 19 Dongs of the downtown area were completed from 2005 to 2009. And the installation was accelerated from 2010 to 2012 for towns and villages to reach a total of 2193 places by November 2012. The new infrastructure was accessible to Jeju citizens.
○ Some citizens, who used to discharge garbage right at their door, complained about the farther distance and trouble in separating trash after the introduction of the on-spot collect system. Other citizens, whose homes were installed as Clean House, complained about NIMBY (Not In My Back Yard) Syndrome.
○ However, positive effects were found around the test operated area at Sam-do 1 dong. Through citizens’ spontaneous activity, neglected garbage bag and stray cats disappeared and the remarkably clean downtown environment surprised citizens.
○ Since then, citizens have requested the extension of installation around the area which has had obviously positive effects on reducing the budget and improving the efficiency of the cleaning administration. So the installation extension was expanded and finally all areas in Jeju city would have Clean House installation completed by November 2012.
