TOILET REBATE PROGRAM

toiletrebate

Toilets older than 1992 use 3 gallons or more of water per flush.  The City of Hollywood has budgeted $250,000 toward a rebate program that pays $100.00 per eligible toilet upgraded, maximum 2 toilet rebates per residence/unit.  That equates to 2,500 toilet replacements.  Each unit owner’s rebate will be applied as a credit to the condo building’s master-metered water account and will be issued to the property management.   Hillcrest 11 HOA will pay forward each rebate received from the City to homeowners who successfully qualified for rebate(s).  The program operates on a first come first serve basis.  Here’s what you need to do to get paid to save water:

  1. Purchase and install a new WaterSense labeled toilet in a master-metered building.  Toilets purchased prior to February 6, 2013 are not eligible.

  2. Complete the Multi-Family Toilet Rebate Application (to download, click there –> City of Hollywood.)

  3. Submit an original application (not a copy) with a copy of the most recent water bill, a photo of the installed toilet, and the original receipt for the newly purchased toilet(s) to the original application.
