In recent years, municipal solid waste management has bacame increasingly important in urban management, and waste classification is one of the very important parts in the waste management. Exactly how garbage classification and classification to what extent are the major problems in China to promote garbage classification and comprehensively promot policies faced. In this paper, we use life cycle assessment (Life Cycle Assessment, LCA) to assess the potential environmental impact of the four possible classification schemes, that source rough classification, the source of the general classification, the source detailed classification and fine classification source. Pudong New Area is in each case, and three indicators assessed: for the greenhouse effect (Global Warming, GW), acidified (Acidification) and eutrophication (Eutrophication). The results show that shame 3 is the optimal solution for the environment; followed by 2 and 4 programs; shame 1 is the worst environmental benefit program.
