Abstract: Industrial wastewater treatment has an objective to minimize its negative impact on environment there by decreasing the volume and the concentration of the industrial wastewater before disposing it to the receiving waters. The minimalization degree necessary can be estimated according to the characteristic data of the wastewater and the required environmental quality threshold. This study aimed to find out the assessment of the wastewater treatment and community perception of non dairy creamer industries in Central Java. The study applied a descriptive research method which consisted of non dairy creamer wastewater disposal system, waste-related environmental pollution analysis and analysis of community perception of the waste produced by the industries. The study revealed that the wastewater disposal from a non dairy creamer industry, produced an average rate below the quality threshold. In other words, the waste disposed along the waste tract had not polluted the environment nearby the industry. The analysis of the community perception proved that the waste disposal nearby the industry was not harmful to the affected environment.
