Introduction to the city

Surabaya is a rMayor Photo_Surabayaapidly expanding port city and the centre of trade and services in the East Java area.  The city previously suffered from massive waste management problems following the closure of its landfill site due to citizen complaints.  Surabaya managed to overcome the problems due to its innovative community based waste management initiatives.  This led to the city being recognised both nationally and regionally for its efforts towards environmental sustainability with Surabaya winning the ASEAN ESC Award for Indonesia in 2011.  Surabaya implemented model waste banks within its city as part of community level waste management activities under the ASEAN ESC Model Cities Programme.
