Where can Superstorm Sandy debris go?
So what to do with all that debris? Either truck it to "waste to energy" power plants (thankfully, there are some in the Northeast) or ship it to Sweden. "What?" you respond.
Yes, 9.5 million Swedes recycle so well that they are running out of garbage. Only 4 percent of their waste goes to landfills. Is this a problem? Apparently it is because Sweden is now importing trash from neighboring countries, namely Norway. Why? For their waste-to-energy incineration programs.
