The waste management system in Sweden has a very good reputation. One of the reasons for that is that we put a very small amout of our waste on landfills, it is only between one and two percent. This is possible since we see our waste as a resource that can be used for energy recovery. More than 50 % of our houshold waste is incinerated and about a third is recycled and made in to new products.
When we compare Sweden internationally we can see that the results for Sweden are quite unique. Sweden is one of the leading nations in waste management. And the biggest different is the proportion of waste incineration and the small proportion put on landfills.
