The Surabaya municipality is facing unresolved issues due to the waste generated by community activities. The UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP) reported that Surabaya generates 111,300 tons of waste, comprised of 32% plastic waste, 18% single-use food service waste, 14% plastic sanitation product waste, and 12% beverage bottle waste. In order to implement the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Surabaya City Government has issued Surabaya Mayor Regulation No. 16 of 2022, which focuses on reducing the use of plastic bags in the region. One factor contributing to the increasing amount of plastic waste generation in Surabaya is the proliferation of restaurants offering online food delivery services. This study employs a juridical-empirical method by sampling 50 merchants affiliated with Go Food, Shopee Food, and Grab Food in Surabaya City. The sample consists of 30 privately-owned merchants and 20 merchants owned by legal entities. The results indicate that all respondents are aware of the Mayor's Regulation in Surabaya. However, only 20% of them consciously and consistently comply with it by using eco-friendly shopping bags and paying the additional fee through an application. The implementation of the Surabaya Mayor's Regulation has encountered obstacles due to a lack of supporting legal infrastructure, thereby resulting in suboptimal monitoring of its execution.
