The purpose of the study was to determine the characteristics (level of education, employment, income, a distance of the house to the TPS and TPA), and community perceptions related to sustainable environmental hygiene programs, especially towards the waste management of the city of Makassar. The data collection method used in the characteristics of society towards environmental cleanliness is carried out using a survey approach.
