Abstract

Waste management is one of the environmental threats yet to be solved. The consequences become the waste being diverted to countries in Southeast Asia and Indonesia is one of the concerned countries. Indonesia yet established effective waste management, and as a result, unrecyclable waste is accumulated. Indonesia is dealt with trans boundaries imported waste from developed countries like America, Australia, Canada, and other European countries. The impact of trans boundary waste is an enormous deposit of waste in Indonesia landfill. Transboundary waste is regulated on the Basel Convention on the Transboundary Movement of Hazardous Wastes and their Disposal (the Basel Convention). Nevertheless, due to the limitation of monitoring and observance, institutional coordination among states and inadequate statutory systems to domesticate international statutory obligations, the Basel Convention is inadequate to prevent the threat and public health implications of transboundary waste. The ambiguity of this international structure could threaten Indonesia since most of the transboundary waste was shipped illegally through Indonesian frontier.This writing will examine the danger of transboundary waste to Indonesian security and discuss how the national legislation could improve the prevention regulation
