Abstract:

This article discusses the historical management of Bank Sampah (Trash Bank). The issues addressed in this paper are: (1) What prompted the emergence of Bank Sampah in Surabaya from 2010 to 2017? (2) How was the pioneering and development process of Bank Sampah for the people of Surabaya from 2010 to 2017? (3) What impacts occurred following the establishment of Bank Sampah in Surabaya from 2010 to 2017. This study employs historical method in its approach, from heuristic stages, criticism, interpretation, to historiography. The analysis is conducted using agency or intermediary theory. The research results indicate that: (1) The background of the emergence of Bank Sampah was due to concerns about waste management in Surabaya. (2) The pioneering process of Bank Sampah began in 2010 with Bank Sampah Bina Mandiri being one of the pioneers in Surabaya. The development of Bank Sampah indicates an improvement in household waste management through the Bank Sampah program in the community. (3) The impacts include a reduction in the amount of waste piling up at homes or in the environment, making the Surabaya city area cleaner from trash. Community involvement in managing Bank Sampah is also evident from the emerging habit of collecting, sorting, and depositing waste in the trash bank. This change aims to shift community behavior from collect-transport-dispose to sort-process-transport. Additionally, the impact can be seen in how the Surabaya City Government has been somewhat aided in handling the increasing waste problem at the Benowo landfill. These facts prove that the existence of Bank Sampah has a significant impact both on the preservation of the surrounding environment and on the community in the area.
