Special Projects
  Main objectives of this project are to categorize garbage collected daily from houses, business premises and factories as degradable and non-degradable items.

Degradable items use to make compost and non-degradable items to recycle and we hope to make total usable waste as an additional source of income to the farmers of the area. We have planned to help the farmers of the city limits and suburbs by this project.

This compost project of the Embilipitiya Urban Council receives around 5.67 tons of garbage per day and we send them to the compost yard daily.

If you need any information about this project or any service please feel free to call via 047 2230275 or e-mail to our chief Public Health inspector.
