Abstract: The conditions in Indonesia are specifically described in the research results of Jenna R Jambeck and friends [1] stated that Indonesia was in second place contributing plastic waste to the sea after China, followed by the Philippines, Vietnam and Sri Lanka. Waste Bank is local wisdom initiative from Indonesia for the waste management. Waste banks are established in a special environment for around 1,000 residents and are usually managed by people and targeted to people who want to increase their income. Bank customers bring all non-organic waste to banks that are treated as deposits. Transactions are recorded preferably in the bank book that the customer keeps or alternates in the list stored by the bank. Many banks also accept organic waste while the rest support composting at home. Waste banks sell materials stored to agents or ultimately to waste bank central developed by government and supplied to company for reuse or recycling. So, waste deposits are converted into money that can be withdrawn when needed after a contribution of around 10% to 15% is reduced for bank operational costs. Community empowerment through the concept of a waste bank still needs the support of infrastructure and information technology facilities and profitable partnerships. The empowerment program for the citizens were conducted through counseling, education, training with as well as dialogue with the citizens in the targeted community. The community waste bank will not have the potential to grow without the involvement and support from the stakeholders. It becomes important to develop model and implement the partnerships, networking and institutional cooperation mechanism between the community, waste bank management, institution, business and government. The integrated partnership on waste management with system information support can generate creativity and innovation as well as to improve the welfare of the community. This paper discuss about designing mobile apps business development for integrated waste management system. It’s a proposed design model for apps and business model for waste management in Indonesia and other developing country.
