Abstract
Garbage still has economic value if used correctly. Waste management from waste sources is an effective way to increase the selling value of waste and reduce waste that dumb into landfills. Waste recycling can provide economic benefits for the community. However, the price of waste or used goods is very dependent on the conditions and conditions of the world market. The percentage of the population Banda Aceh who often do recycle by 5.08%, quite often 3.35, %, while those that are rare and never is 24.57% and 67% respectively. In this paper, we argue that recycling of used goods will provide economic benefits to the urban community if done well. These include waste separation and avoidance, community recycling centers and the provision of incentives and disincentives. This paper is to examine how the economic benefits obtained by the urban community if the implementation of Zero Waste principles is implemented in Banda Aceh. Research method based on surveys, in-depth interviews with various experts from academics and officers from the government, waste activists, and documents reviews.
