"Estonia has become an importer of other countries' rubbish in order to keep one of its power plants running"


Last year, the country brought in some 56,000 tonnes of refuse for its waste-to-energy power plant at Iru as the country isn't producing enough rubbish of its own to keep the boilers heated around the clock


That fuel - waste from other countries - came primarily from Finland, but also from territories as far afield as Ireland
