MORIOKA, Japan, April 9, Kyodo

Toyama Gov. Takakazu Ishii signed a memorandum with Iwate Gov. Takuya Tasso on Monday stating Toyama’s conditional acceptance of debris from Iwate created by the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami.

The conditions for acceptance include the consent of residents close to debris disposal facility locations in Toyama and radioactive cesium levels below the central government-set maximum allowable limit of 100 becquerels per kilogram of debris.

Before signing the memorandum, Ishii visited a debris breaking and sorting facility in Yamada, Iwate Prefecture, and found radiation levels were lower than expected, he told reporters.
