New Tec offers rebates for using less water
NEW TECUMSETH – New Tecumseth is offering a little incentive for residents looking to reduce their water use.
To help offset the cost of replacing high water consumption toilets with low flush toilets, the town is offering a $50 rebate per toilet. For residents buying a rain barrel, the town is offering a rebate of 50 per cent of the cost of the barrel (to a maximum of $50).
By installing an EcoEnergy low flush toilet, the town says people can help the environment by reducing water consumption and save money on your water bill. Rainwater collected through outdoor rain barrels can be used to water your lawn and flower garden or washing the car.
Each residence is eligible for two EcoEnergy toilets and one rain barrel for the first year of the Ministry of Environment-mandated program.
Rebate forms are available online at http://www.town.newtecumseth.on.ca/TownHall/WaterConservation/index.htm or by calling 905-729-1270 ext. 432.
