Sweden

Sweden is importing garbage from Norway!

Sweden

The Swedish people are big recyclers. Only 1% of garbage is thrown away, with 50% recycled or composted and 49% burnt for electricity. This may sound like good news, but it has resulted in one major issue: there isn't enough rubbish to keep the incinerators going. As a result, Sweden has devised an innovative solution. To keep the lights on, they import garbage from Norway and the United Kingdom. As an added plus, the nations actually pay Sweden to remove their rubbish!
