Nowadays, the pattern of utilizing the remainder of used goods is not fully understood by the community, especially among rural communities. This is indicated by the fact that there are still many piles of garbage in the midst of residential areas that they do not actually realize what potential can be created from the remaining used goods. Waste is generally an item that has a negative impact on the environment such as the emergence of diseases, pollution etc., but otherwise when processed properly it will have a positive impact on a product that is quality, quality, competitive and of economic value. The community service program initiated by the Al-Anwar College of Economics aims to increase the knowledge and understanding of rural communities to have a high awareness of environmental awareness and the use of used goods that were originally of low value into competitive products. The method of implementation is by (1) empowering the community by maintaining the cleanliness of the environment, (2) counseling on the management of used goods on a household scale, (3) training on the production of waste products, (4) counseling about effective marketing methods for the community. This activity involved all rural village communities, Trowulan sub-district, Mojokerto, and was assisted by experts from the health office. The results of this activity showed that there was an increase in knowledge and interest in learning from the community to use used goods that pay more attention to the environment and ultimately help the economy and improve quality life of the villagers.
