Abstract

Central Bureau of Statistics (BPS) survey in 2018 showed that only 1.2% of households recycle waste and around 66.8% incinerate waste. Low community participation has a negative impact on landfill dependence, managing-cost, sustainable waste management, and the environment. This study aims to optimize community-based household and hazardous waste management at the local government level. This research used policy analysis, field surveys, and in-depth interviews regarding the issuance of Jakstrada. However, Jakstrada is not necessarily the answer to the waste problem. This is in accordance with the target to be achieved from the preparation of the Jakstrada, whereby in 2025 the national waste problem is 100% managed, with no more waste being dumped into the river or open burning in the environment. Waste is encouraged to be managed by applying the 3R (reduce-reuse-recycle) principle, with the key strategy by changing the community's paradigm to build awareness in managing their waste. As the hierarchy of sustainable waste management emphasizes the importance of public participation and changes their perception of waste management as the first step to achieve waste reduction, support for reliable technology is also needed to recycle and reuse waste.
