Indonesia's population is increasing every year, so many household needs need to be met. As a result, a lot of household waste has accumulated in FDS (Final Disposal Sites). This condition is very disturbing to the health of the people living around the FDS. Therefore it is necessary to compost household waste which can minimize the pile of garbage in the FDS. One of the methods is using BSF larvae. BSF (Black Soldier Fly) larvae are larvae that can consume various kinds of organic waste, such as household waste, quickly. The experimental results show that household waste compost has micronutrients that comply with Indonesian composting standards (SNI 19-7030-200). Micronutrient elements from household waste compost using BSF are Zink (60.55ppm), Manganese (36.55ppm), and Boron (12.07 ppm). Also, compost from household waste using BSF, the toxic elements cannot be detected, so it is safe to be applied as a nutrient for plants.
