Waste - Why care? (Norway)
Economic growth is one reason for the rising quantities of waste.There is more and more hazardous waste from consumer goods such as computers and mobile phones. However, with more waste recovery, the quantity of waste delivered for final disposal has remained relatively stable. Norway aims to recover about 75 per cent of all waste by 2010, this goal has been reached. Releases from waste treatment have been reduced in recent years.
