Law enforcement on the impact of plastic waste disposal as a source of pollution of the sea environment in indonesia

Article 29 paragraph (1) point c of the Law on Environmental Protection and Management of 2008, abbreviated as UUPPLH-2009 states that the prohibition of disposing of waste in places that have been determined and provided, this implies that the prohibition of disposing of plastic waste in the sea also applies. Furthermore, Article 60 of UUPPLH-2009 states: Everyone is prohibited from dumping waste and / or materials into environmental media without permission. The problem that then arises is why people or legal entities do not obey the provisions of Article 29 paragraph (1) point c? The method used in this paper is juridical normative, to analyze the legal issues contained in the laws and regulations related to the issues being studied in a qualitative analysis. The form of law enforcement against actors of plastic waste disposal that causes pollution of the marine environment in Indonesia is by applying sanctions for those who dispose of plastic waste in the sea. In Article 104 and Article 98 UUPPLH-2009. The form of State Responsibility for the Impact of Plastic Waste Disposal which causes Pollution of the Marine Environment in Indonesia, namely the President of the Republic of Indonesia has issued Presidential Regulation Number 83 of 2018 concerning Handling Marine Debris. With the issuance of Presidential Regulation Number 83 of 2018 concerning the Handling of Marine Waste, the handling of plastic waste in the sea is increasingly being carried out by the government.
