This research aimed to examine reuse policy of both Japan and Korea based on the investigation of waste management policies and the result of investigation carried out by the Institution of Environment Lifestyle and culture in 2007 to examine reuse policy. According to the investigation, most of the people "Dispose their old clothes" or "Keep them at home". There are about 647 recycle-shops in Japan and we could take questionnaire survey randomly. But, there are not such recycle- shops in Korea. However, according to previous investigations, a stock of un-disposed or the old clothes kept at home are growing in Japan. It is doubtful that the management of waste recycling could solve the waste problem. However, the result of the current study suggests that the reusing old clothes that are in a big stock within the region would have benefit to local economy, and this method of reusing resources could contribute in building cycle-oriented society in both countries.
