In Indonesia, sites for TPA (landfills) as final waste dumping are still in limited supply. Meanwhile, the amount of recycled waste is still low due to the lack of awareness about how to sort household waste. The citizens' participation activity for this study aimed to increase awareness about how to sort household waste by involving the stakeholders. The method used for the citizens participation activity was obtained through four stages, including advocacy, counseling for garbage collectors, counseling for households, and monitoring the waste sorting behavior in households. The obtained results are based on a 100% attendance at counseling by both the stakeholders and the garbage collectors. There is a significance difference in the level of understanding found in households before and after the counseling. According to the results of the study, as many as 44.2% of the households started sorting their waste based on monitoring.
