The EPA has developed the Waste Reduction Model (WARM) to help solid waste managers estimate greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions from several different waste management practices. This model is useful for high level analysis but breaks down when applied to specific local systems.

This capability is of growing importance given the emergence of national carbon regulations which will require solid waste managers to develop greenhouse gas reduction strategies for their local systems.
