The research method used was descriptive qualitative. The data were collected through interviews and observations. The respondents of the interviews were the manager of the landfill of Piyungan, the head of the dusun, the head of the neighbourhood organization, the chief of the mosque caretakers, the chief of the scavenger organization, the people of Dusun Ngablak and some scavengers. In conducting the observation, the researchers used an observation guide, namely the observation on the interaction of the people in the society, how the members of the society invile themselves in the social life, and how the scavengers work in the landfill. The type of observation was partial participative observation.
The result of the research showed that the impact of the landfill on the social activities was that it brought extra activities for the people such as working as scavengers, running small shops, and rising cattle. The impacts on the social condition of the society were that people’s economy was getting better, the unemployment rate decreased, the people’s qualiy of life improved. Environmentally, the landfill caused pollution to the environment and air pollution. In terms of health, people did not care about the landfill as they considered it as something common. In the aspect of social life, the people living around the landfill did not have good communication and interaction with their neighbours as they were busy with their own jobs. In relation to education, parents did not give enough attention to their children’s education because they spent more time in the landfill to get rupiahs. They believed that the landfill is a field of gold.
