Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I think China has been taking in waste for recycling, but not handled it very environmentally friendly (to say the least). I recently read an article about a town in China that is the center of Chinese plastic recycling and it's an environmental and health nightmare. (I can't find the link now.) So it's probably a good thing that China stops destroying their environment for what amounts to green washing.

For those concerned about Sweden's dependence on trash for energy, the plants can run on wood too, and we have huge forests. No trash would be better than burnt trash, but burnt trash is better than landfills.
