This study has purposes calculating GHG emissions using the IPCC calculation methods (default) to estimate the potential for GHG emissions in the reduce, reuse, and recycle (3R) activities in integrated temporary waste storages (ITWSs), waste transportation, and the Jatibarang landfill. The results of this study indicate that the landfill activity has the greatest value of GHG emission potential compared with other activities. Optimization of 3R activities at the landfill site is also considered capable of reducing the GHG emissions of the existing waste by up to 75% without composting.
