The purpose of this study is to provide information related to the summary of policy making that is used as a reference to increase the effectiveness of processing ash from combustion based on a review study. This study uses a descriptive method with a literature review approach. The criteria for the articles used have a publication time of the last 10 years, discuss the utilization of combustion ash, and discuss the policy of processing incinerator ash waste. Making a policy brief can be used as a starting point for advocating for local governments to use ash from burning as an alternative to building materials to reduce air pollution and the accumulation of ash waste that accumulates in incinerators in health care facilities.
