Background: Food waste is a very serious problem, it is proven that Indonesia is the second largest producer of food waste in the world. A limited waste management system will result in a decrease in environmental quality such as air pollution, water pollution, and soil pollution. So far, the waste management system is only limited to reducing waste generation. Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is a method to analyze environmental aspects or environmental impacts at all stages in a resource's life cycle, from the initial process of raw materials to disposal. This study aims to analyze the environmental impact and provide waste management policies so as to obtain sustainable household waste management and environmental sustainability.
Method: The design used in this research is cross sectional by conducting direct observations and interviews at the Waste Bank. Interviews were conducted to identify more in-depth about waste management problems and about the characteristics of respondents and waste characteristics. While observations were made to calculate waste generation that refers to Indonesian national standard Methods of sample collection and measurement urban waste generation and composition (SNI 19-3694-1994.) The sampling technique was carried out by total sampling of and who are willing to be respondents 100 households.
Results: The results of research with organic waste processing with the Black Slodier Fly (BSF) method Organic waste processing with the Black Slodier Fly (BSF) method produces impacts on global warming, acidification, eutrophication and ozone layer depletion. Of the four impacts that produce the smallest impact is the impact of global warming of 0.281 kg CO2 eq compared to other impacts.
Conclusion: However, BSF processing can reduce environmental impacts, especially global warming, and education affects people's behavior in generating food waste so that there are policy recommendations for Waste Bank stakeholders in processing food waste.
