The Comox Valley Regional District is continuing the toilet and rain barrel/cistern rebate program for 2011.

Operating on a first-come, first-serve basis while funds are available, the program entitles owners of property connected to the Comox Valley water system a $75 rebate for installing high-efficiency (4.8-litre flush) or dual flush (usually three- and six-litre flush) Canadian Standards Association-approved toilets. There is a maximum of two toilet rebates per installation address; this includes any toilet rebates received under the 2009 and 2010 programs.

Residents are also eligible for one rain barrel or cistern rebate under the 2011 program. A rebate of up to $50 will apply to the purchase of a rain barrel or cistern between 150 and 499 litres, and up to a $150 rebate for those equal to or greater than 500 litres.
