Cranbrook snaps up toilet rebates

Council is yet to decide whether to continue the rebate program next year.

With a little over six weeks until the end of the year, Cranbrook residents have taken all 200 rebates for low-flow toilets from city hall.

Now in its third year, the city’s Low Flow Toilet Rebate program has handed out a total of 600 rebates to residents who replace large-volume toilets with either low-flow or dual-flush fixtures in their homes.

The program is a large part of the city’s overall water conservation initiative, and the $50 rebate encourages residents to help the environment and reduce the amount of water the city’s water and sewer systems needs to deal with each day.

The city offered recognition for the Regional District of East Kootenay and the Cranbrook Transfer Station staff, who support the program by taking the old toilets people have replaced.

Council is yet to decide whether to continue the rebate program next year. However, if it does go ahead, rebates will likely be available once more in May 2013.
