Not every traditional market is equipped with sufficient waste processing utility system. The waste treatment system in Indonesia consists of five stages that include: (1) storage, (2) collection, (3) transfer, (4) transportation and (5) disposal system. Each stage involves a storage container with various capacities and different movement patterns for each processing system. Currently, merchants determine the storage placements and processing paths that depend on the market management. In general, they place them freely, not only in their stand but also in circulation space which then affected the human movement. A set of data collection, observation, and mapping were carried out in two traditional markets in Jakarta and three traditional markets in Depok. This study was aimed to identify the human movement patterns with regards to the positions of the utility system. Findings revealed two factors that influenced the human movement. Those were the availability of space in advance (the compatibility between spaces and properties of the containers), and the circulation paths (the process of waste treatment at the circulation paths that influenced human movement at certain times).
