Sweden is now importing garbage?!?
I didn't realize how efficient Swedes were at recycling, however. Only 4% of trash goes to landfills there. The rest is recycled or burned for energy.
In fact, there isn't enough to burn to keep the power plants going! So, according to the Mother Nature Network, Sweden is importing burnable trash from its neighbors in Norway. That is, as they say, a high-class problem to have.
