One of the causes of environmental degradation in urban areas is the waste problem. Waste problem arises because of improper human behavior in managing waste. The trigger of this behavior is the lack of awareness in waste management. Waste management education should be given at an early age in school. One of the policies concerning waste management that has been implemented in schools in Makassar City is Local Government Regulation Number 4 of 2011 about Waste Management through 3R (Reuse, Reduce, and Recycle) Principles. This study, used descriptive qualitative approach, aimed to find out the process of implementing this policy in Elementary Schools. The informants were taken from the school community, Environmental Office and Education and Culture Office. Data were collected through interviews, observations and documentation technique and analyzed using qualitative descriptive. The study showed that the implementation of waste management policy in this school was conducted and organized systematically through School Waste Bank Program. The existence of this program has an important role in raising awareness of the school community, especially that of students, and motivating them to implement 3R in solid waste management.
