LEGAL REVIEW OF COASTAL WASTE MANAGEMENT IN IMPROVING COMMUNITY ECONOMY
Legal Review of Coastal Waste Management in Improving Community Economy. How can current regulations on beach waste management not improve people's economies? How is the legal construction in coastal waste management in improving the economy? The research method used is empirical juridical with a statutory approach, concept approach, and case studies. The results showed that: 1) The government is responsible for adequate recollection and disposal of waste from settlements. However, because there are other things that must be prioritized in development in the regions and the lack of supporting funds for the operationalization of waste management, making in some areas this waste management activity is not as expected. This is further strengthened by the lack of application of the principle that those who produce goods must manage waste from these goods. Of course, in this case, public legal awareness related to waste management and utilizing waste into goods of economic value is needed. By doing so, it will help in encouraging economic improvement in the community. 2) According to Law Number 18 of 2008 concerning waste management, states that waste is a national problem so that its management needs to be carried out comprehensively and integrated from upstream to downstream in order to provide economic benefits, healthy for the community, and safe for the environment, and can change community behavior. Presidential Regulation of the Republic of Indonesia No. 97 of 2017 concerning National Policies and Strategies for Household Waste Management and Similar Household Waste, targets a 30% waste reduction by 2025 through 3R (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle). One solution in waste or waste management can be the existence of a waste bank. Through waste banks, waste management needs to be carried out in order to benefit the community economically. Not only in the economic sector, waste banks also aim to educate so that people become aware and more creative. The waste bank also aims to provide a pattern of good behavior in managing waste so that people do not easily dispose of waste anywhere.
