Abstract

Garbage is closely related to environmental pollution and public health, because of the waste will live various microorganisms that cause disease and also animals / insects that move or spread disease. Referring to Law No. 18 of 2008 concerning Waste Management, one effective way to reduce the amount of waste generated from its sources includes the reuse of organic waste into compost which can be accelerated by using local (mol) activator microorganisms without causing unpleasant odors. The purpose of this study was to determine the differences in the quality of household waste compost based on the type of activator. This type of research is analytical with experimental research design while the research design is post test only with control group design. The results of the statistical test of the Kruskall Wallis Test followed by the U Mann Whitney Test showed that there were differences in the content of banana mol compost phosphorous content and banana waste mol compost (p = 0.008) and there was a difference in banana hump compost phosphorus content and compost without activator (p = 0.008). there is a difference in the quality of household waste compost based on the type of activator (p = 0,000). Suggestions that can be given should be the addition of mol doses in composting.
