Every step in the life cycle of municipal solid waste contributes to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions— from the production of the products that eventually become municipal solid waste to its collection and eventual decomposition. Efficient and effective management can lower GHG emissions.
Proper management of onsite wastewater disposal systems (cesspools and septic tanks) and public and private treatment systems is critically important to protecting groundwater and surface waters. Inadequate management can release methane, a powerful greenhouse gas.
