Abstract—In order to reduce environmental pollution, waste returns and recycling has become a trend. But the process of waste management such as waste collection, treatment and distribution between supply and demand that lacking of information often leads to more wastes. This study took the full information sharing into account, reducing wastes between the members of the supply chain. In addition, because all the process of waste treatment will deal with the cost and risk, this study thus discussed waste management system under uncertainties. Providing information to business decision-makers, the purpose of this study is to discuss the retail price of reusable waste which returned to the market and the amount of waste collection that affects the profit. The result shows that demand quantity and price factors would affect the amount of waste collection and the profit; where the waste collection risk is a significant factor, thus this study indicated that the management needs to consider risk factors in the waste collection system.
