This activity is carried out to provide public education on waste management in several stages, namely field surveys, social mapping, counseling, and evaluation. Counseling is done by method of lectures, discussions, and demos. Material submitted about the types of garbage and its dangers, the introduction of the concept of TPS3R, and demos on garbage sorting. Counseling has changed people's perceptions of garbage. People become more understanding and aware to manage household waste. Finally, the community can conduct garbage collection, sorting, transporting, and weighing activities properly, proven in Dukuh Rowo Pasar successfully conducting transportation and weighing of garbage independently.

It takes community cooperation to deal with this issue. The village government should allocate budgets for the procurement of waste management facilities and infrastructure, such as trash cans, transportation of garbage transporters, and the construction of landfills (landfills). In addition, waste management education to the community also needs to be improved.
