Surabaya has several productive kampungs known as KampungUnggulan. One of these is Kampung Lontong which provides rice cakes (lontong) for all of Surabaya. However, the existence of home industries, which are typical of this kampung, has made this settlement polluted and disorganized. Specifically, waste from banana leaves, the main type of rice cake packaging, is scattered around the kampung. The decaying waste gives off a stench and is unsightly. The limited availability of land is one of the causes of this waste problem for the kampung. A waste treatment system is needed to accommodate waste production by maximizing available space. This study uses a post-positivist method by identifying and mapping potential and existing problems.The qualitative method used is a SWOT analysis. The study proposes a concept and strategy for managing waste that can optimize the local institutions and the remaining space in the kampung. In addition, the waste management process is carried out by empowering the community via their local institutions, so that the processing of waste can provide additional income for the residents.
