The waste produced by this Puskesmas is not properly managed which can cause disease and environmental pollution. The aim of this research is the management of medical waste management at the Jambi City Puskesmas with PERMEN LHK NO 56 IN 2015 concerning the procedures and requirements for the management of hazardous waste materials from health care facilities and creating a solid medical waste management model at the Jambi City Health Center in accordance with the PERMEN LHK NO 56/2015. This research was conducted in all Puskesmas Jambi City, as many as 20 Puskesmas. The type of research used is descriptive research using a qualitative approach.
