Abstract: Municipal solid waste (MSW) has become a severe environmental threat with more urbanization and a enormous shift in people’s lifestyles in our nation over the past two to three centuries.the waste generation of a person towards MSW is increasing unprecedented from 0.6-0.8 kg in the 1990s to more than 1.5 kg and more articles over “use – and-throw” are playing a significant role in our daily operations. Solid waste management eliminates adverse impacts in surrounding and enhances the economic growth and superior value of life. The main emissions from the handling and management procedures of MSW are CO2 and NH3. Consequently, adequate management of MSW becomes essential to offset the GHG (Green House Gasses). Hence Proper management of MSW becomes essential to offset GHG (Green House Gasses), which would otherwise contribute strongly to the domestic anthropogenic GHG budget. This paper is intended to assess techniques for managing MSW in the context of GHG decrease as a Climate Change mitigation project in Chidambaram. IPCC Model projected methane to be 908,1023Mg / year in Chidambaram for a 25-year credit period.
