If you would like to sign up to use the EcoService, please call Gillian or Jayamurthy, listed in Contacts.
The city service covers the maintenance and the landfill logistic.
At present, Eco-Service is partly funded by the city service. It covers its running costs by the money earned from recyclables and user fees.
For the rest, Ecoservice is fully self supported:
- Wages of 6 ladies,
- 2 part-time watchmen,
- 1 driver,
- 1 handy man,
- Diesel and vehicle maintenance, infrastructure.
We are grateful

- to the monthly contributors on the Ecoservice financial account
