This activity received a positive response from the service participants, in this case the women at the Qoryah Thoyyibah housing.

The problem of waste is still a major problem in almost all places. One solution to protecting the environment is to start from the household by managing household waste. For this reason, education regarding household waste management in an effort to protect the environment needs to be carried out. By holding this community service activity, it is hoped that the community will gain an understanding of the importance of maintaining a clean environment. Socialization and education to the public is very necessary to provide understanding to manage and process waste properly and make efforts to reduce waste, especially plastic waste.

The first material that was disseminated was regarding household waste management in general, including: (a) Sorting waste based on its type, namely organic waste, inorganic waste and hazardous and toxic waste; (b) Manage waste with the concept of reduce, reuse, recycle, rot. After that, we continued with material on managing organic waste into ecoenzymes. This is also followed by the practice of making organic waste into ecoenzymes.

The participants were very active in taking part in these activities, both in the form of lectures/counseling and during practice. The interactive dialogue between the service team and the participants was good enough to motivate the participants to manage the household waste they produce.
