Waste banks has been long being a part of waste management in Surabaya. Waste banks also plays a role in implementing the circular economy concept by collecting and reselling waste from household. The waste that has been collected from the waste banks were sold to the Main Waste Bank and small scrap dealers. This study aims to identify the material flows of plastic wastes and paper wastes from the waste bank to the recycling industry. The methods used for data collection includes survey and interview to the management of waste banks, management of the main waste bank, waste collectors, and management of the industries involved. The identification of material flows of plastic wastes and paper wastes from the waste banks to the recycling industries was done using the material flow analysis method. The material flow of the waste bank in the Central Surabaya region shown that the generation of waste generated at the waste bank was 34,815.1 kg per year. The waste was distributed to the main waste bank and waste collectors before finally being sold to the recycling industry and out of the system as plastic products at 13,041.45 kg per year and paper products at 20,311.14 kg per year.
