Organic waste can have economic value, such as used for animal feed, fish, and fertilizer. Organic waste from human activities needs to be deciphered before it becomes an economically valuable product. Maggots (BSF flies) are larvae that can convert organic material into biomass and potentially break down organic waste. Garbage has become a problem in Jambi due to population growth, changes in consumption patterns, and people's lifestyles, producing 1,600 m3 of waste per day. By utilizing maggot cultivation (BSF), community services activities can enhance the economic value of organic waste in Purwodadi Village, Tanjung Jabung Barat Regency, Jambi. This article aims to study organic waste management using maggot cultivation. The result is that this method can be an alternative for organic waste management. This method embarks a sustainable environment and increases resources which can be traded or utilized. Maggot bioconversion technology can deal with three main problems, namely: The generation of organic waste, high prices of protein sources, and increasing demand for animal feed. In conclusion, organic waste management using maggot cultivation brings a sustainable environment and enhances organic waste's economic value. Therefore, it can be a useful alternative for waste management.
