Region of Peel Toilet Replacement Program Ending
BRAMPTON, ON. (Aug. 31, 2012) – Residents and businesses in Peel have one more year to participate in the Region’s Toilet Replacement Program, as the program will end as of Sept. 1, 2013.
“Water efficient toilets are now easily accessible and less expensive,” says Shaun Hewitt, Director of Operations Support. “In response to innovative water focused legislation, water efficient fixture labeling programs such as WaterSense®, and a rising awareness about the benefits of water efficiency, we have modified our programming.”
Effective Sept. 1, 2012:
- For Residents – rebates of $25 per toilet are available, with a two limit maximum per household.
- For Businesses – rebates of $25 for gravity flush toilets are available.
All eligible rebate applications for toilets purchased before Sept. 1, 2013 will be accepted until Dec. 1, 2013.
Since 2005, Peel's toilet replacement program has issued over 140,000 toilet rebates, saving approximately 10 mega litres of water per day.
“We thank everyone who has participated in the program,” adds Hewitt. “Collectively, our efforts have had a significant and positive impact on water use.”
