Wastes are sources of GHGs, not only by the relation to production, transportation; pre- and post-consumer consumption), but also because of methane gas when disposed of in landfills. Methane recovery systems can be explored for use in municipal landfills, and programs which support composting, organics and blue/grey bin recycling, as well as personal and corporate waste minimization can reduce GHG emissions. Changes in purchasing and a small shift in behaviour patterns can help in climate change mitigation.
