Indonesian government built a hazardous waste treatment facility near two villages in Bogor, Indonesia. The facility has been operating since 1994, and its activities affect the neighboring villages. There had been two significant conflicts between the village's community and the company, in 2006 and 2008. The acceptance of the surrounding neighborhood is one of the major risks affecting a company's lifetime. This study aims to provide the latest perception of the two villages' community on the facility's existence. The survey, observation, and in-depth interviews were employed to gather enough information for perception analysis. The perception analysis represents variables: Socio-demography, knowledge and information, health issues, social-economy values, and trust. The survey was conducted to 100 respondents, and the data were analyzed as a Likert scale for each variable. The univariate analysis was performed to map the perception, which resulted in "good perception". The bivariate analysis was performed to explore the socio-demographic variable's influence on perception. The result showed that there is no significant correlation between age, education level, and occupations with perception. These results can be used as the base information to determine the company's sustainability strategy.
