Domestic waste from households is the biggest contributor to municipal waste management. Palangka Raya City is one of the cities that faces waste problems due to lack of awareness of the citizens. The culture of dumping garbage into river bodies is common for residents who live along the river banks. This study aims to determine waste generation and the factors affecting waste generation of household in the Palangka Raya City. The measurement of waste generation was carried out in accordance with the guidelines of SNI 19-3964-1994, while the variables that are suspected to influence the waste generation were collected by the questionnaire. To find out the factors affecting waste generation, data were analyzed by multiple linear regression. Based on the results of research conducted on 48 respondents obtained household waste generation in Palangka Raya City is 0.33 kg/person/day, while significant factors affecting waste generation are concern for the environment and income levels at a 95% confidence level and the number of family members at the 99% confidence level. While the recycling knowledge, education level, house size and installed electrical power did not significantly affect waste generation. With this information, it can be calculated the needs of TPS, the needs of the transport fleet, the needs of cleaning staff and plans for controlling household waste generation in the Palangka Raya City.
