Collaborative governance is a concept that is considered to be able to give a big contribution in solving various problems in society, including waste management. Waste management is an urgent matter today because more than 400 thousand tons of waste is generated every year with only ten percent being recycled and the rest ends up in the ocean. This condition is added by a report from the International Coastal Cleanup which states that 9 out of 10 items of waste in the ocean are plastic. Indonesia, as one of the countries with the largest population in the world, also has the largest contribution in producing plastic waste. Bali is one of the provinces in Indonesia that contributes the largest plastic waste. To answer these problems, this paper uses a qualitative approach with a library study data collection method, to analyze how collaborative governance processes proceed for a sustainable environment. The results obtained show that collaborative governance in the management of plastic waste in Bali’s sea and its legal basis have been running well but community participation and compliance are still lacking. The conditions that occur are a common goal between actors that have not yet been formed– to achieve the preservation of the marine environment that is free from plastic waste pollution. The high amount of plastic waste in Bali’s sea is also caused by weak law enforcement and a lack of public awareness and mutual understanding
