Recycling organic of house waste remains fairly limited especially in urban area with low-and middle-income. A novel approach is developing method to manage the organic waste conversion using larvae Black Soldier Fly (BSF). The advantage of this approach links to the green technology waste management which is no pollutant effect to the environment as well as increase the added value economically. The research project successfully presented organic house waste conversion into high protein of animal feeding source. From the 5 dol of larva BSF's (approximately 17 gr), it was reduced organic waste ± 0.7 kg/day. Within 10 days, the larva BSFs of 17 dol was consumed organic waste ± 10 kg, with increase their weight to become approximately 10 kg. The larva BSF of 17 dol is potential as animal feeding source that contain a high of protein. Furthermore, the waste from BSF's cycle life is potentially to convert into chitosan, due to contain of chitin. Chitosan was produced from the waste of larvae skin, pupa skin and insect imago death. In general, this organic waste management is offering to green organic waste management in the future.
