Norway Will Supply Sweden 800 000 Tonnes of Waste

Norway will annually supply neighboring Sweden 800 thousand tons of garbage for recycling.

Sweden’s program of generating energy from garbage has been applied successfully for decades. The country creates energy for around 250,000 homes and powers one-fifth of the district heating system by recyling the waste, but recently its success has been halted due to the shortage of trash.

To meet the demand of waste, Sweden has recently begun importing thousands tons of trash annually from other countries.

As recycling cost in Norway is expensive than sending waste to Sweden, Norway has opted to pay Sweden to take its 800 thousand tons garbage.
