ABSTRACT. Solid waste management is one of the most popular urban environmental problems in many developing countries due to increasing urban, economic, and industrial activities. Indonesia is a developing country with many coastal settlements such as Makassar City. This study aims to determine Waste Management on the coast of Makassar City, namely the "Kawasan Pelabuhan Baru" which has the status of a slum settlement. An investigation was carried out regarding the generation, storage, and collection of waste. The population of this study was 119 houses/households consisting of permanent and semi-permanent houses partially built over the sea on the coast. The method used in this research is quantitative and qualitative. The results of the analysis show that the volume of waste generated is around 58% organic and 42% inorganic with an average of 1.8 kg per household for organic waste and 1.31 kg for inorganic waste. Most houses use individual bins and only houses on the main road get communal collection and storage services.
