Active engagements in ecology practices are platforms which lead to good ecological behaviour and consciousness (Kamaruddin et.al., 2013). This study aims to explore urban community stewardship or civic ecology practice of doing composting in an urban municipality, i.e. Subang Jaya Selangor, Malaysia in the context of practice theory (Schatzki, 2000). The variables were analysed using the chi square test of independence and factor analysis procedure. The findings highlight how elements, such as competencies, meanings and physical resource, define the practice and support urban stewardship. Family and friendship networking, collaboration with others and civic consciousness were crucial in motivating the participants and support program sustainability.
