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.  This contest seeks proposals that can significantly contribute to reducing GHG emissions from any aspect of waste and waste management.
