The traditional market in Indonesia still has challenges concerning the waste generated, both organic and inorganic waste. The aim of this study is to analyze the waste management system that is performed in Garut District especially Guntur Traditional Market. The qualitative method was used by conducting a number of in-depth interviews toward stakeholders, namely garbage managers, seller, environmentalist, environmental researchers and local community. The results showed that the types of activities, road conditions, sidewalk conditions, and aesthetics around the Guntur Traditional Market have declined after the expansion of the market and the rampant illegal traders’ activity around it. The number of personnel, limited means and infrastructure, education, law enforcement, public participation, research and development, and the participation of important stakeholders that include academics, community, and private sector are important dimensions that must be involved in the improvement of Guntur Traditional Market management.
