Abstract

In Indonesia, Pekalongan City is one of the cities in Central Java that has earned the nickname "Batik City." The increasing number of batik industry entrepreneurs in Pekalongan City has led to an increasing number of environmental pollution caused by B3 waste from batik that has not been processed beforehand and dumped directly into the river. With this happening continuously, it results in increasingly severe environmental pollution that occurs along rivers in the Pekalongan City area. The lack of awareness and understanding of batik industry entrepreneurs in Pekalongan City is one of the factors causing widespread environmental pollution there. In this case, the Environment Agency (BLH) of Pekalongan City has the duty and authority to deal with environmental pollution caused by B3 waste originating from batik. The existence of environmental pollution that occurred in Pekalongan City has basically harmed various parties, even though, in essence the right to a clean and healthy environment is a human right for all Indonesian citizens. Besides that, law enforcement against batik industry entrepreneurs in Pekalongan City is still not optimal, so there are still many violations against environmental pollution originating from B3 batik waste in Pekalongan City.
