The amount of greenhouse gas emissions from municipal solid waste management of landfill areas in Nakhon Si Thammarat municipality was investigated. This landfill was received the solid waste from 5 districts, i.e. Mueang Nakhon Si Thammarat, Tha Sala, Lan Saka, Phrom Khiri, and Sichon. It was found that the total greenhouse gas emission from municipal solid waste management was 1.78 tons-CO2/tonne-waste/year. The greenhouse gas was generated from waste-collecting sites, transportation, and landfill. The amount of greenhouse gas emissions from the waste-collecting site was 1.22 tons-CO2/tonne-waste/year. Mueang Nakhon Si Thammarat district has the highest greenhouse gas emission from the waste-collecting site, 21.81 % of the total emission from all sources. Total greenhouse gas emission from collection and transportation was 0.18 tons-CO2/tonne-waste/year. Mueang Nakhon Si Thammarat district has the highest greenhouse gas emission from collection and transportation, 81.07 % of the total emissions from the collection and transportation. Total greenhouse gas emission from landfill was 0.38 tons-CO2/tonne-waste/year. Municipal solid waste management of Nakhon Si Thammarat municipality has high greenhouse gas emissions from waste-collecting sites and landfill sites.
