The objective of this study was to determine household garbage management specifically participation of housewives in Banjarsari village West Cilandak district South Jakarta. The instrument used was a standardized questionnaire. A proportional random sample was taken from 8 sub-villages of a total of 218 households. The housewives were categorized as active or inactive group based on their level of participation in household garbage management namely doing composting for active (n=21) and those only separating garbage and disposing of garbage or doing nothing at all for inactive group (n=50). Active housewives were aged >50 years and not working, while inactive housewives were between 36-50 years and working. Other demographic indicators were similar. More than ninety percent (95%) of active housewives were self-motivated to manage household disposal, while inactive housewives had to take care of children and do other household chores or were busy at work (88%). Approximately seventy percent (71%) of active housewives had significantly good knowledge on garbage disposal compared to only 22% of inactive housewives (p < .05). Distance of garbage disposal to active housewives residence (10-50 m) was significantly closer than inactive housewives (> 50 m; p < .05). Active housewives participated more in community meetings (twice monthly) compared to inactive housewives (never; p < .05). Active housewives had never been visited, while inactive housewives had been visited by the local health provider, however, the difference was not significant.
