This research aims to describe the role of the Bank Sampah Induk Surabaya (BSIS) for empowering the customers' economy based on the perspective of Islam. This research uses a descriptive qualitative approach with a case study method.

Meanwhile, the non-material role of this bank is the safety and cleanliness of the environment, it becomes a clear impact when it is noticed that the amount of waste decreases.
