Organics Program continues

The Town of Morinville and your local Home Hardware store have partnered together in promoting this enhanced organics program. Morinville’s eligible premises have the option to purchase an “under the sink” caddie to collect daily organics while receiving a promotional rebate. Simply purchase your caddie at Morinville Home Hardware, bring your receipt with proof of Morinville residency to the Public Works Shop on 107 Street to get your instant full rebate. Limit of one caddie per household. This new initiative only applies to eligible premises now receiving yard waste as defined in bylaw 7/2014.

2014 Toilet Rebate Program
The Town of Morinville is offering a rebate to residents, rental properties and business owners to encourage the replacement of old and inefficient toilets with low-flush or dual-flush toilets to reduce water consumption. For 2014, there is no limit to the number of toilets per property to qualify for the rebates. The program is retroactive to January 1st, 2014 and will be effective until the rebate funding is
depleted. First come – first serve, so act fast!

The program provides a rebate of $75 on the purchase of new “WaterSense” labeled low-flush or dual-flush toilets rated 6 Liters per flush (Lpf) or less. The low-flush/ dual-flush toilet must be a replacement unit.

Toilets installed in newly constructed homes or add-on bathrooms are not eligible as they should already meet these criteria. The toilet must be WaterSense labeled, indicating that it has been backed by a third party, independently tested and is built to WaterSense specifications of efficiency and performance.

For additional information on the program requirements or how to submit and access an application form, please visit our website at www.
morinville.ca or pick up an application on the second floor of Civic Place or visit the Public Works shop at 10310 – 107th Street.
