Population growth is very influential on the amount of waste generated. The available land is very limited. The coastal community in Besuki mostly disposes garbage in the sea of any river due to unavailability of landfill. So we need a study on the estimated volume and type of waste generated by households in coastal village in Besuki region, Situbondo. This study used 10 household samples spread over coastal village. The study was conducted for 8 days using survey method with sampling (Proportional Random Sampling). Based on the results of the preparation, obtained the waste generated in the form of organic waste and non-organic waste. The composition of organic waste can be selected into several types of leaves, garbage, household, food scraps, and wood. As for the type of non-organic waste can be sorted into plastic, paper, metal, rubber, styrofoam, and cloth. The total amount volume of waste produced per household in a day in coastal villages is 47,3 liters with the largest composition of waste generated from plastic by 43,36%.
