Garbage is an object or material that is no longer used by humans so it is thrown away. The societal stigma regarding waste is that all garbage is disgusting, dirty, etc., so it must be burned or disposed of properly. All community activities always generate waste. Takakura is a household-scale composting method using the "Takakura Basket" which was introduced by Koji Takakura, a waste expert from Japan. The method for determining problem priority was the Capability, Accessibility, Readiness, and Leverage (CARL) method. Training on making Takakura baskets on Thursday, December 13, 2021, at 08.00 WITA at the Melati Putih Posyandu, Ponoragan Village, Loa Kulu District. This activity was attended by 24 participants.
