MIAMI (CBSMiami.com) – If you’re is sick of the sitting on the same old bowl at home; Broward County wants to make it worth your while to get rid of that old toilet.
Broward County and 16 city and water utilities are offering rebates of up to $100 toward the purchase of a high-efficiency toilet.
“Rebates provide an incentive for people to conserve water and that is of benefit to everyone,” said Commissioner Kristin Jacobs. “When people reduce the amount of water they use, we are better able to meet water supply demands in a cost affordable way. Water is a finite resource.”
Broward County estimates that taking advantage of the program rebate and other water-conserving tips will save 30,000 gallons of water annually.
The program is being offered by water utility areas in the cities of: Coconut Creek, Coral Springs, Dania Beach, Deerfield Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Hallandale Beach, Lauderhill, Margate, Plantation and Sunrise, and the towns of Davie and Hillsboro Beach.
There will only be 1,700 rebates issued. In addition, low-flow showerheads and faucet aerators will also be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
