A trashy post

Hej! When we were living in Sweden last year we all started recycling food waste.  Here's one of the benefits of living in a country of only about 9.5 mill, things like this are do-able.  We all received a special trash barrel on wheels, a new plastic receptacle for the kichen, and breathable brown paper bags with a well-written instructional brochure.  We threw food trash out in the plastic receptacle lined with the brown paper bags and when full placed them in the outside special barrel.  We did just as told - it wasn't hard - and they carted our food trash away at the same time as the regular trash.  The whole country was "mobilized" in no time flat and now Sweden is importing trash. Why?  For energy.  Pretty cool.  Read more about it on NPR: Sweden wants your trash
