Low Flow Toilet Rebate Program


Over 30% of indoor water use occurs through toilet flushing. To help reduce water consumption in the CBRM Water Utility customers are being offered an extraordinary toilet rebate program - $50.00 credit on their municipal water bill. This program is aimed at encouraging water customers to change their old high-flow toilets for the newer low-flow models.


Single-family residential customers will receive a $50.00 credit on their municipal water bill for the installation of a 6-litre low-flow flush toilet. In order to receive the credit, participants must meet two requirements:


1. The installation address must have an active retail water system (CBRM Water) account in good standing with the Cape Breton Regional Municipality.


2. Participants must agree to have a representative from ACAP Cape Breton visit their residence to confirm low-flow toilet installation.


*Please note that this credit may take up to three months to be applied to your account.


For more information, to receive an APPLICATION, or to drop off a completed application visit ACAP Cape Breton’s Center for Sustainable Communities at 90 Esplanade, Sydney, or call 902-567-1628.
