This Is How You Make a Garbage-Free City

Borås is so efficient with its waste disposal that it’s even started importing trash from elsewhere in Europe to use in its power plants.

Garbage-Free City

In the Swedish city of Borås, everyone knows they have to sort their combustibles from their biodegradables or else risk an angry call from Pär Carlsson — who’s part of an army of environmental crusaders working to make this city totally trash-free.

Already, less than 4 percent of his town’s garbage is routed to a landfill, and the rest is reused, recycled or morphed into energy to run the local buses and cars. “No waste goes to waste,” says Carlsson, head of strategic development for the zero-waste project at the municipally owned company Borås Energi och Miljö.

Today, Borås is one of the only places in the world that produces almost no waste at all, yet its efforts are part of a broader movement that’s rethinking how to, well, trash our trash. Cities around the world are trying to revolutionize the way garbage gets handled through seemingly sci-fi technology that can convert all manner of household and municipal waste into energy.
