Sankei wrote that the Defense Ministry and the Environment Ministry have drawn up a manual on a division of labor between the SDF and other government agencies and the private sector regarding waste disposal during government-wide natural disaster response operations. The purpose of creating the guidelines is to end the “free use of SDF labor” in clearing earth, sand, and other debris following natural disasters, which could hinder the SDF’s capability to defend the nation from adversaries.
