Randupadang Village is one of the villages located in Menganti District, Gresik Regency. The main agricultural commodities in this village are rice and corn. In addition, this village has a farmer group (gapoktan) which manages the farm of 9 dairy cows. All cows are kept in a semi-permanent cage, so that approximately 135 kg of cow dung every day must be cleaned in order to have a clean condition cage. Unfortunately, cow dung waste has not been utilized optimally. The society there prefer to dump it into the river or around the cage. It is caused by lacking of knowledge and public awareness. As a result, environmental pollution, including land, water and air, has made the image of the village less clean. The methods implemented by the team to reduce these problems are: counseling, FGD and assistance in making liquid fertilizer (POC) and compost from cow dung waste as basic ingredients. The results of this activity Gapoktan Padangan: 1) The establishment of a centralized waste treatment unit, 2) The establishment of an independent village in waste treatment, 3) The improvement of community welfare. 4) There was an skills increase  69.56% increase  in making liquid fertilizer (POC) and   65.22% in making compost.
