Abstract

In 2019, the Department of Culture and Tourism of Surabaya stated that there were 87 "restaurants", 776 restaurants and 14 food courts dumping waste every day. If waste is collected, the weight will reach 2.64% of the total volume of waste in Surabaya. Based on data from the Department of Sanitation of Surabaya shows the total volume of waste is 9,009.28 m3 in 2012. The problem is that restaurant waste is not managed well. Urgency of the research is to identify waste management restaurants in Surabaya and constraints in order to obtain the right solution. Data is obtained through surveys, interviews and observations. The population is 87 managers of "restaurant" in Surabaya. Samples taken randomly. The sample is 20 restaurants. Data is analyzed qualitatively. The results showed that restaurant waste was put into special waste plastic without being sorted and disposed of in the trash. The janitor takes it. The challenge is that if refuse collector do not take out waste, then the waste will accumulate, the smell will disturb consumers, damage the scenery and spread disease. The research recommendation is to sort waste before being disposed. Waste is sorted between wet waste and dry waste. Wet rubbish is used as catfish or duck food. It is better for restaurant owners to work together with catfish and duck breeders regarding wet waste that has been sorted out.
