High-Efficiency Toilet Rebate
Effective October 3, 2011 the British Columbia Building Code regulation requires the installation of high-efficiency toilets with a 4.8 litre flush volume or less.
Under the updated regulation, new residential buildings and renovation projects, including toilet replacements, will have to include high-efficiency toilets with a 4.8 litre flush volume or less. Toilets which provide a dual flush cycle option of both 4.1 litres or less and 6 litres are compliant. Please note we will only accept rebate applications for toilets that have a flush volume of 6 litres purchased prior to October 3, 2011. These new requirements will not apply to toilets in industrial, commercial or institutional buildings, such as schools and hospitals, which can still install 6-litre models.
How to Qualify
Customer must receive water from the municipal water system (i.e. no homes serviced by Clearbrook Waterworks District or on a private well).
Replacing a toilet with a 13 litre (or greater) flush volume with a CSA-approved 4.8 litre (or less) toilet or any CSA-approved dual-flush toilet. For a list of approved High Efficiency Toilets (HET), please check the list of ALL 1,435 tank-type WaterSense High-Efficiency Toilets.
Rebates for single family residential homes will no longer be accepted for 6 litre toilets. Industrial, commercial and institutional facilities are still eligible for rebates for 6 litre toilets.
To complete the efficiency cycle, old toilets should be recycled at either Abbotsford Mission Recycling Depot (33670 Valley Road, Abbotsford) or the Mission Recycling Depot (7229 Mershon Street, Mission). There is no charge for dropping off old toilets. For industrial, commercial or institutional customers please contact the the Engineering Department first. Old toilets will be crushed and recycled as landfill cover material.
There is a lifetime maximum for up to two $50 rebates for single family and multi-family customers. For industrial, commercial or institutional up to 50 toilets can be claimed. For customers who wish to replace more than 50 toilets please contact the Engineering Department at 604-864-5514.
