Stop Flushing Money Down the Toliet

BRAMPTON, ON. (April 13, 2011) Peel residents can save money on water bills, reduce water use, and receive a $60 instant rebate by purchasing a high efficiency toilet at Peel Tile on Saturday, Apr. 16 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Peel Tile will also offer up to an additional 35 per cent savings on featured toilets.

The $60 instant rebate and additional Peel Tile savings can be applied at the point of purchase to toilets labeled Peel-Approved that are either:

  • Single-flush toilets that are less than or equal to 4.8 litres per flush;
  • Dual-flush toilets with both:
    1. A reduced flush volume of less than or equal to 4.1 litres
    2. A full flush volume of less than or equal to six litres

The Region of Peel will be at Peel Tile, 3620A Laird Ave., Mississauga, 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. Applicants are requested to bring proof of residency in the form of valid photo ID and a copy of a water bill to verify eligibility. The instant rebate applies to in-stock toilets only and there are no rain checks.

Mail-in rebates are also available from the Region of Peel on an ongoing basis as part of the Toilet Replacement Program. In 2010, the Region of Peel provided 22,000 rebates as incentive to phase out older, less efficient (13-20 litres) toilet models, which has saved over two mega litres of water per day. These savings contribute to a reduction in energy consumption and associated greenhouse gas emissions.
