Abstract

This study aimed to determine the amount of distribution of active waste banks along with the composition and amount of waste generation in Surabaya City, as well as to provide a generation map for paper, plastic, and metal waste from Surabaya's active waste banks. The data of the research was obtained through the survey of all Surabaya City waste banks consisting of waste bank activity data, coordinate data, waste bank documentation, composition data, total waste generation, and East Java map. Based on the data obtained, the researchers mapped the waste banks using the ArcGIS 10.2 software. Based on the results of the research, there were 64 active waste banks in Surabaya City during May-July 2016 spread in five areas: 9 waste banks in Central Surabaya, 12 waste banks in West Surabaya, 12 waste banks in South Surabaya, 19 waste banks in East Surabaya, and 12 waste banks in North Surabaya. The waste composition and generation consist of paper waste of 8,254.3 kg/month, plastic waste of 2,870.5 kg/month, and metal waste of 2,352.3 kg/month. The distribution map of paper, plastic, and metal waste from GIS-based active waste banks can facilitate waste management in Surabaya City.
