Source level composting facilities
Suchitwa Mission provides technical and financial support to the local bodies for their projects of households, institutional or communities level (source level) composting facilities such as Ring Composting, Kitchen Bin Composting, Pot Composting, Bio-gas plants etc. All composting facilities are eligible for subsidy of 75% from Suchitwa Mission and 50% for bio-gas plants. For source level composting facilities and bio-gas plants Local Self Government contributes a subsidy of 15% & 25% respectively.
Households, flats, residential colonies, institutions, hospitals and schools are encouraged to do source level segregation and source level treatment of bio-degradable fraction of solid waste. This approach helps to treat half of the waste generated from these sources at source. Currently 75% subsidy is given for source level treatment for biogas plants (50% by Suchitwa Mission and 25% by the Local Bodies; 25% by the beneficiary). In the case of different types of compost systems, 90% subsidy (75% by Suchitwa Mission, 15% by Local Bodies; 10% by the beneficiary) is given. The source level treatment of waste is encouraged by giving subsidy to hotels, chicken stalls, hospitals, schools, offices at the rate of 50% from the Government subject to a maximum of Rs. 1 lakh.
