Abstract : Banjarmasin has a strategic position that makes it grow fast. The development of its population density also supports the city's fast growth. However, the effect of the population density in Banjarmasin takes its toll on the waste problems in the city. As we understand, the more people reside in an area, the more waste they will produce. The main focus of this research is the waste containers at Temporary Shelter (TPS) on the sidewalk. It has become a problem that the TPS are seen and harm the surrounding, especially during the waste collection and transport process, which often cause traffic jams. This research aims to change the stigma of waste containers in Banjarmasin from “needed but undesirable” into “needed and desirable to the community and environment.” To realize that, we need to optimize the shape of the containers and arrange the collection and transport system. The shape application and the arrangement are analyzed; therefore, the design must consider the insufficiency of space/area, the flow and the jam, the function and aesthetic, the environment, the amount of waste, disposal patterns by the community, as well as the application of innovations/technology. The design approach is used as a reference to design alternatives that will be applied. Based on the design approach to the insufficiency of space for the waste containers and their collection and transport system, the layout and plan are designed using a vertical system. The waste containers are designed with block and tackle systems. The containers can be lifted and aligned with the box of the waste disposal trucks, and the waste collectors can easily collect and transport the waste from the containers to the box. Besides the application of the collection and transport system, the waste container shapes also influence the area's beauty. The supporting elements of the waste container design in this research are rolling door system, panel wall ornaments, decorative plants, channels and control tanks with for leachate management. These waste containers are designed as a prototype of containers in areas with insufficient space and on the main streets. From the design plan, it is estimated that the cost of one waste container is higher compared to the conventional design. However, the new design and system can reduce the number of employees and the time of the transport process. Furthermore, this new design and system can also solve the problem of insufficient space for collecting and transporting waste. The newly designed containers are also more desirable to the community and environment than the conventional ones.
