 Household waste is an environmental problem that is still being faced by the Province of Lampung, Indonesia. To deal with the growing problem of household waste, the provision of regional landfills is currently very necessary, especially for urban areas that no longer have adequate landfills. However, the local government ego of each district/city to provide land to accommodate waste disposal from other districts/cities is a very urgent problem to be solved. This study argues that the Local Government of Lampung Province in implementing waste management policies based on Good Environmental Governance principles is still lacking even though Lampung Province has a fairly high household waste production. Until now, the local government has not formed a Regional Regulation on Waste Management as an important instrument in overcoming regional egos in waste management in Lampung Province. Local governments need to develop inter-regional cooperation to overcome household waste problems by establishing a Regional Final Disposal Site (TPA Regional) that can be used together. The formation of a legal product at the provincial level that regulates the TPA Regional is a solution to the problem of legal certainty in overcoming the local government ego.
