Mojokerto, a municipal city in Jawa Timur Province, Indonesia, consists of two districts and 18 villages. Its waste services cover 67% of the villages with the capability of transporting 78.2% of the waste generated by 349 m3/day produced by 135,024 inhabitants. The research aims to develop a sustainable waste management strategy with qualitative descriptive method. Data collection was carried out through documentation, focused group discussion, interviews, and observations on the process of waste management. Waste management was seen technically from the operational, institutional, regulatory, funding, community participation aspects with reference to the theory and analysis of Strength, Weaknesses, Opportunity, and Threat (SWOT). Waste management in Mojokerto uses the collection, transportation, and disposal system leading to uncontrolled waste generation at the landfill as well as high operational cost. Trials on waste reduction in terms of sources as well as waste management at the regional level were done; yet, they had not provided optimum result as waste disposed at the landfill amounting to 273 m3 per day. Waste management in the landfill with landfill control systems and solid waste generation rate of 1.6% per year lead to failure in cost recovery. Developing waste management strategy to reduce the volume of waste sources by involving the active participation of domestic and community scale or regional groups, improving the quality of the management of the landfill as a processing site instead of disposal, increasing waste services coverage, increasing cooperation with individuals, developing the system of rewards and sanctions, recovering costs of waste management, regional cooperation in waste management, optimizing the utilization of solid waste infrastructure are all necessary. The strategy relies on a change of mindset for managing solid waste between the public and private sector with the implementation of reduction, reuse, recycling and environmentally safe disposal.
