Dengue fever was one of dangerous diseases due to it might cause death in a short time. It transmitted through its vectors, namely, Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus. Maya index is an indicator that used to identify a high-risk area or not as a breeding ground for Aedes sp. The purpose of this study was to determine the type of landfill which has the potential as a breeding ground for mosquitoes, to find out the larvae found in various landfill sites, and to know the Maya index status in Metro Timur Subdistrict which was carried out in NovemberDecember 2017.Thisresearch conducted by direct survey to 100 residents'houses in East Metro. The results indicated that the type of controlled water reservoir that had the mostpotential as a breeding place for mosquitoes were a bathtub, while the type of water reservoir that was not controlled which had the potential as a place for mosquito breedingwas a fish pond usage. There were 2 types of larvae found, namely, Aedes aegypti larvaewith a percentage of 47.7% and Aedes albopictus larvae with a percentage of 52.3%.Medium category detected as Maya index status there, which obtained from the BRIcombination and HRI category. In addition it did not mean that the area has been free fromdengue cases. The role of the community is still very much needed in eradicating landfillwhich has the potential as a breeding place for dengue mosquito esvector.
