- Dual-flush toilets with both:
- A reduced flush volume of less than or equal to 4.1 litres
- A full flush volume of less than or equal to six litres
Region of Peel staff will be at the following Home Depot locations to help residents fill out rebate application forms, assist with the selection of Peel-Approved toilet models, and answer any questions about water efficiency.

To be eligible for the instant rebates applicants must live in Peel and own or rent a single or multi-family dwelling. Proof of residency such as a copy of a water bill or valid photo ID is required to verify their eligibility. The instant rebate applies to in-stock toilets only and there are no rain checks. Home Depot will also be offering over 30 per cent savings off the original purchase price of select high efficiency models. The additional savings offered by Home Depot are valid on Saturday, Aug. 14 and Sunday, Aug. 15 only. See participating stores for details.
Mail-in rebates are also available from the Region of Peel on an ongoing basis as part of the Toilet Replacement Program. In 2009, the Region of Peel provided more than 27,000 rebates to residents as incentive to phase out older less efficient (13-20 litres) toilet models. This initiative has saved more than two mega litres of water per day. The reduction in water and wastewater that requires treatment and distribution also contributes to reduced energy consumption and associated greenhouse gas emissions.
