One of the human activities that affect the state of the environment is the domestic waste disposal. Palembang with economic growth and rapid population does not have adequate solid waste management, which is characterized by wild rubbish heaps in several locations, one of which is in the region Seberang Ulu. The results of this study show that the volume of solid waste generated in the research area by 2.98 liters/person/day. In planning for the needs of solid waste transportation systems, solid waste reduction activities such as solid waste bank unit and the 3R system (TPS 3R) need to be considered, with a target of solid waste reduction was 20%. Solid waste reduction can ultimately extend the life of the landfill. Projected needs garbage container (capacity 6 m3) and garbage trucks (capacity 8 m3 with 5-6 rit/day) in 2027 was 166 and 25 units, with the requirement of solid waste reduction in solid waste bank and 3R unit 29.93 m3/day. The volume of solid waste generated is directly proportional to the increase in population, and solid waste reduction greatly influenced the community's active role as a producer of garbage.
