Title:
Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions through Recycling and Composting

Abstract:
This report is intended to help governments and other organizations make informed and strategic decisions about how to direct their limited resources toward end-of-life management of materials that provides the most significant impact on life-cycle greenhouse gas emissions. The report also provides rationale, from a climate action, economic and pollution prevention perspective, for local jurisdictions to adopt and implement recycling and composting initiatives in their communities.
