Improper waste management happened in most of the developing country where inadequate disposal of waste in landfill is commonly practiced Apart from disposal, MSW can turn into valuable product through recycling, energy recovery, and biological recovery action as suggested in the hierarchy of waste management. This study presents a novel method known as waste management pinch analysis (WAMPA) to examine the implication of recycling and landfill reduction target on the carbon emission. WAMPA aims to identity waste management strategies (waste to energy (WTE), recycling, reduce, reuse) based on specified landfill reduction target and carbon emission target. WAMPA is capable to examine the capacity of each strategy groups through graphical representation, and is also capable to provide meaning and illustration to the effect of changing of target toward the needs of each strategy.
