The Scandinavian nation of more than 9.5 million citizens has run out of garbage; while this is a positive – almost enviable – predicament for a country to be facing, Sweden now has to search for rubbish outside of its borders to generate its waste-to-energy incineration program. It’s namely Norway officials who are now shipping in 80,000 tons of refuse annually to fuel the country with outside waste.

And burning carbon based fossil fuels isn't? It's kind of solving one problem and creating another.. but it's a problem we made with fossil fuels anyway, I still think it's much better than having the trash cities and barges.
Living in Sweden for the last 14 years, I can tell you out off all the countries I have lived in and visited Sweden by far is the most active when it comes to recycling and waste management. So it is quiet possible they are running short.
Though the claim off cheaper electricity I have to call BS on that as every year like many countries I see the power bills rising more than the income.
