Florentinus Sudiran





Garbage is solid wastes which have mostly organic composition and the rest consists of plastic, paper, cloth, rubber, bone and others. Garbage disposal in urban areas is often a burden because it involves financing for waste transport, disposal sites, health and environmental hygiene. The burden of waste management is increasing as the volume of waste increases due to population growth and community behavior. Samarinda as a developing city also experienced the problem. Problems encountered include low service coverage, especially for domestic waste, high landfill demand, and high government subsidies that resulted in the community no matter the amount of waste generated. The purpose of this study is to determine whether the waste management by the government of Samarinda City from management management aspects, institutional capacity and financing system is environmentally sound. The method used is non experimental method and do direct observation in the field. Data collection with questionnaires, field observations, document analysis and literature. Based on the results of the study concluded as follows: Waste management by the Government of Samarinda City as a whole has been good, and has environmentally minded by running the system of collecting, transporting and destruction and separating waste from waste processing and sources into compost fertilizer though still very limited in scope. Waste management by the capital intensive Samarinda City Government leads to high costs by the operational costs of trucks and other vehicles.
