Indonesia became the second-largest global marine plastics contributor, with annual plastic marine debris estimated at 0.48–1.29 million metric tons per year. In Jakarta’s coastal area, 59% of the marine litter is plastics. The circular economy is a new paradigm adopted in plastic waste management in Indonesia, and research in this area continues to grow. This circular economy paradigm requires sufficient collaboration among stakeholders in plastic waste management. However, the data on Indonesia’s best partnership scheme for plastic waste management is still lacking. This study aims to fill the gap by examining the most feasible partnership scheme that brings the most effective plastics waste handling and economic benefit. This study used a quantitative questionnaire followed by an interview to provide information about stakeholders’ participation in plastic waste management in Central Jakarta. A stakeholder analysis was employed to assess the best partnership scheme. The result finds that the public-government partnership is the most feasible and sustainable partnership to be implemented in Central Jakarta, Indonesia. Collaboration between the public and government could enlarge service coverage in managing plastic waste based on the circular economy paradigm. Strengthening the public-government scheme contributes positively to the plastics collection rate, recycling rate, benefit-sharing, and positive perspective among stakeholders.
