Charlottetown City Hall

Charlottetown’s toilet rebate program and clothes washing machine rebate program is so popular they’ve run out of money.

The city said Monday the program has ended for the year as budgeted funds have been exhausted.

The program provided rebates to water and sewer utility customers who replaced existing inefficient toilets and clothes washing machines with a high-efficiency models. Since launching the program in May 2011, over 730 low-flow toilets have been replaced.

The washing machine rebate program began in February with a total of 36 clothes washing machine rebates issued. The total water savings of these two programs is estimated to have saved 22.8 million litres of water per year.

Rebate programs have significant importance in the water conservation program as a support to the community and as an incentive to participants.

    Number two requires two flushes now on the low flow here> The sewer pipes will have more concentrated sludge how will this play out? Manhole covers do not have u-traps to keep gases in and will allow stronger germ laden fumes to delight your senses and spread disease???
