Abstract. Most people (85.52%) in Sleman regency treats the Household Hazardous Solid Waste (HHSW) improperly by open burning or dumping in rivers, yards or vacant lands. The presence of hazardous materials contained in the HHSW can lead to public health problems such as poisoning, accidents, illness, and even death. These study aims were to investigate the generation of HHSW and to choose the most optimal solutions to HHSW management in Sleman regency for the future. The generation of HHSW was obtained from the monthly sample survey of 120 households. Planning of HHSW management schemes was conducted by the back-casting approach while selecting the best alternative was made by Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis. Results of the study shown thatHHSW generation average in Sleman regency was 2.438 g/person/day or about 2.81 tons/day in 2013. Electronics, electric bulbs and batteries were the dominant sources of HHSW in percentage, which contained 24.91%, 18.08%, and 16.71% respectively. The community-based HHSW management is the most optimal of three schemes to be applied in Sleman regency for future.
