The high level of unmanaged plastic waste in Indonesia has resulted in plastic waste polluting rivers and oceans, the Ciliwung River. The ignorance of Jakarta's people about management and their attention to plastic waste will ultimately worsen the condition of the Ciliwung river. Therefore, the article tries to describe a solution that can minimize plastic waste in the Ciliwung River Basin. Using a descriptive approach and qualitative data derived from literature studies, it was found that increasing public awareness at the local level, especially in communities around riverbanks, could be done to reduce plastic waste from the community. The solution focuses on reducing the amount of plastic waste and monitoring plastic waste management not littered in rivers. Persuasive approaches (outreach and training), provision of facilities, and law enforcement can be strategies to encourage behavior change from the community.
