Households with all their activities produce waste which can be a source of GHG emissions if not managed properly. Reducing waste from its source is one of the ways to reduce GHG emissions. In Bandung Regency, one of the ways to reduce household waste is by running the Waste Bank program. Research is needed to find out how much the reduction of GHG emissions from waste management in the Waste Bank. This study used a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods with descriptive analysis including IPCC method to estimate GHG emission reductions from waste management and in-depth interview with the operators in one of the Master Waste Banks (Bank Sampah Induk) in Bandung Regency, Y Waste Bank. The results showed that the potential GHG emission reductions from Y Waste Bank reached 0.016 Gg CH4 or equivalent to 401.273 tons of CO2eq, reducing GHG emissions from total household waste in Bandung Regency by 0.0007 %. Program and technology innovations and also assistance for customers or fostered groups are expected to be able to increase the quantity of waste managed at the Y Waste Bank up to the household level so that it can give higher contribution in reducing GHG emissions in Bandung Regency.
