The waste bank is one of the formal sectors to reduce waste in the city of Surabaya. Sukolilo Sub-District has 22 active waste banks, but eight waste banks are inactive. Also, the TPS is carrying out plastic waste sorting. The sorting activity at the TPS is much greater than the reduction through the waste bank. The purpose of this research is to analyze the recovery factor (RF) through the waste bank and TPS. The method used is interviews with waste banks and TPS as the formal sector and collectors as the informal sector. The results show that the recovery factor (RF) in Sukolilo District is still far from standard. Plastic RF in Sukolilo District is 4.79% from the standard which can be reduced by 50%. This waste reduction involves the roles of the formal and informal sectors.
