Recycling "flammable" garbage

In Japan, we sort our garbage. Normally you sort things into "burnable", "not burnable", "cans", "PET-bottles", "plastic", "paper", etc. At the National Institute of Information science, where our work meeting was held, they apparently expect people to want to throw away only two types of garbage, "plastic" and "flammable". How much flammable stuff do people in Tokyo carry around with them to motivate a huge basket like that?!
