The new paradigm of solid waste treatment that accentuate in reducing solid waste was applied in Malang Raya, Indonesia through 15 solid waste recycling facilities of different types. The objectives of this research were to identify types of the solid waste recycling facilities, and to determine solid waste recycling potential. Solid waste volume was measured according to load-count analysis method. Sampling for solid waste composition analysis was done randomly at solid waste recycling facilities with quarterly method. Total volume of solid waste input at solid waste recycling facilities was measured according to the amount and volume of various kinds of collecting vehicle. The results of this research showed that there were 4 types of solid waste recycling facilities in Malang Raya, which comprised 66.67% composting units, 20% Recycling and Compost Production Units (UDPK), 6.67% Integrated Solid Waste Treatment Facility (TPST), and 6.67% 3R Solid Waste Treatment Facility (TPST 3R).
