In this question on the Travel SE OP is asking about こみ収集ステーション that he has seen, and provided this image of a notice on one of those from Higashidori, Aomori:

enter image description here

The pic is blurry, but not so bad that a missing 濁点 could be attributed to the quality of the pic. Why is it 「こみ」 instead of 「ごみ」 here?

I've found a box that shows the dakuten, it's barely visible but it's there.

enter image description here

To confirm this, I did a bit of digging around and double checked on the Higashidori government website where it uses 'ごみの収集'.

It's likely a typographical error, or the 濁点 is incredibly illegible in the image. こみ収集 doesn't make sense enough that my keyboard auto-corrects to katakana (doesn't make sense either).

Either blurred or a typo. It's definitely ごみ
