This paper is to design Android-based applications that can be a media of household recycling waste information and to know the level of user acceptance on Android-based social media system of household waste recycling (Pilah Matur App). To measure user satisfaction in user acceptance test, authors used the survey method. The problem of waste, especially household waste, has not been handled properly including in urban areas. The addition of landfill sites cannot directly solve urban waste problems, because the volume of waste at the landfill is very large and mixed with dry and wet wastes, also organic and non-organic wastes. Separation of household waste is a very important part of the effort to reduce the garbage disposed to the landfill. Information technology can take a role in facilitating the waste sorting process. Pilah Matur App can be used as a media for sharing the recycled waste information so that household waste can be interchanged by urban residents who might be needed it to be reused. Sharing the recyclable material information using Pilah Matur App is expected to reduce the amount of waste disposed to the landfill. The application design such as user interface and application prototype is introduced to the users in order to obtain feedback and measure the level of user acceptance. In general, Android-based social media system of household waste recycling can be accepted by users, there are 12 indicators that show positive results and 2 indicators that show negatives. The negative results caused by users expect more various features and users expect the application to be faster in the process of sending or uploading data. Furthermore, authors have to improve the speed of uploading process of a large photo of household waste recycling. Available features should also more added to increase user acceptance levels.
