Waste bank is a form of community participation, used as an alternative to provide solutions on the waste problem. However, the waste bank program in Probolinggo has not suceeded in terms of the number of waste banks established in the region, turnover and the level of waste reduction. The objectives of this study are to analyze the internal and external factors in waste bank development and to formulate the development strategy of the waste bank in Probolinggo. This study uses a combination of qualitative and quantitative approaches (mixed methods) with Strength, Weakness, Opportunity, and Threats analysis (examining its strength, weakness, opportunities and threat) and Analytical Hierarchy Process for examining the prioritized strategy of waste bank development. The findings suggest that the priority for strategic development of waste bank program in Probolinggo is by increasing the awareness and commitment of local government, by increasing participation and public awareness of environmental hygiene, and by increasing cross-sector cooperation and partnership with companies (private sector).
