    The authors focused on the major alternatives to waste collection and transport practices used in Da Nang city. GPS devices and a GIS software
    were used to survey and analyze the detailed tracking data on 3 current practices; “Door-to-door collection by tricycle and transport by truck”, “Door-to-door
    collection and transport by truck”, and “Fixed time dustbin collection and transport by truck”. The operation efficiency indicators, such as unit operation time,
    person-hours/t and operation velocity were calculated using a detailed operation category: moving forward and backward, waste collection waste, unloading
    and other activities. Using multi-regression analysis, the authors estimated the unit loading time and the unit waste amount for 4 types of containers, 240-L
    dustbin, 280-L dustbin, 660-L dustbin and Handcart.
    Using scenario analysis in Hoa Cuong Nam ward in the Hai Chau district, the operation efficiency of “Door-to-door collection by was 4.39 person-hours/t,
    which was lowest among the current 3 practices, and that of “Door-to-door collection and transport by truck” was 3.70 person-hours/t. “Fixed time dustbin
    collection and transport by truck” achieved the highest efficiency of 2.15 person-hours, which was less than half of “Door-to-door collection and transport
    by truck”. The operation efficiency of a separate collection of bio-waste by plastic bag was 3.49 person-hours/t. It was better than the door-to-door collection
    scenarios, which means it would be a feasible alternative that can replace door-to-door collection practices.
    The authors also conducted sensitivity analysis to clarify the impacts of policy factors such as truck capacity, collection frequency, and separation rate of
    bio-waste. The variation range of efficiency by collection frequency was larger than the range by truck capacity. The authors also found some conditions for
    the separate collection of bio-waste by plastic bag with better efficiencies than “Fixed time dustbin collection and transport by truck”, e.g., “7 times per week
    for bio-waste and once per week for other waste”. The variation range of efficiency by separation rate was largest among the influence factors considered
    in this study.
