Aurovilians are asked to segregate their waste at source, to maintain clean and dry, organized waste disposal systems, and overall to work towards as close to a zero waste policy as possible.
Cost for waste pick up
- Rs.80 per bag for unsegregated waste for Aurovilians
- Rs.30 per bag for segregated waste for Aurovilians
- Rs.120 per bag for unsegregated waste for non Aurovilians
- Rs.70 per bag for segregated waste for non Aurovilians
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 donors that has enabled us to buy grinding machine, and the collection and storage sack for 2018.
- to the monthly contributors on the Ecoservice financial account
