Tenggilis Mejoyo District, Surabaya City has had a population growth rate of 0,03% in the last ten years, so the amount of waste generation has also increased. Waste management in the district still applies the collect-and-dispose method which results in a large amount of waste that goes to the landfill. This study aims to examine the potential for household waste reduction that occurs in each waste source and determine strategies for improving household waste management. Waste generation data collection method with direct sampling method at the source according to SNI 19-3964-1994 as wee as interviews. The number of samples is 100 houses selected using a stratified random sampling approach which refers to the strata of population density. Interview data were analyzed using Strength Weakness Opportunity Threat (SWOT) analysis to determine waste management strategies to increase waste reduction at the source. The results of this study indicate that the average household waste generation is 15.62 tons/day. Currently, household waste reduction reaches 19.3% from each waste source, namely waste banks, temporary disposal sites (TPS), Reduce Reuse Recycle waste disposal site (TPS 3R), and composting. Increasing reduction through waste utilization and increasing community participation is ideally planned to reach 28.5%. The results of the SWOT analysis show that household waste management is in the third quadrant, namely the turn-around strategy. The strategies that can be implemented consist of conducting socialization and training for the community, providing waste pick-up mechanisms by waste banks, scheduling a waste collection, and implementing technical guidance and periodic monitoring by Environmental Agency and collaborating with corporations.
