What initiatives, policies and technologies can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions from waste and waste management?

According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, post-consumer waste contributes approximately 3% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, primarily from the disposal of solid waste through landfills and incineration, and of liquid waste through sewage treatment. Industrial and waste/wastewater greenhouse gas emissions have doubled since 1970. This contest seeks proposals that can significantly contribute to reducing  emissions at any scale (i.e., household through international levels), and from any aspect of waste and waste management.
