•Garbage Enzyme was produced from organic waste with 57.43 U/mL lipase activity.•Statistical tools were used for parameter optimization to enhance lipase activity.•Lipase obtained was stable in high pH, temperature and organic solvents.•Partially purified lipase (PPL) yielded 88.63% of biodiesel from palm oil.•PPL from garbage enzyme could be an efficient biocatalyst for biodiesel production.
