The distribution network model is one of the sophisticated strategies being used in research to assess the state of household solid waste (HSW) management and calculate the quantity of greenhouse gas emissions from landfills in Nghia Ninh and Bao Ninh communes. Traditional and modern techniques are also being used in this study. The results have assessed the existing state of household solid waste (HSW) management for home sizes ranging from four to six people. The daily average for garbage per person is 0.31 kilogram. The corresponding CO2 emissions from the two communes are 0.42 kg/person/day (Bao Ninh) and 0.47 kg/person/day (Nghia Ninh); study and survey data from these two districts show that the average cost for households to collect HSW is 27,000 VND/family/month. 2698.72 kg CO2 equivalent per ton of garbage, the same amount of emissions from solid waste. Nghia Ninh and Bao Ninh communes, as well as the Dong Hoi city government in general, rely on it to limit the amount of waste that families emit into the environment while encouraging improved information exchange and sharing. Share responsibility for waste management and encourage waste separation at the source.
