Toilet Rebate Program

2022 Toilet Rebate Program

High Efficiency Toilet Rebate Program beginning April 1, 2010

The City of New Berlin Water and Sewer Utilities are sponsoring a toilet rebate program to encourage customers to replace their old toilets with high efficiency water-wise low-flow toilets. This program has been extended to 2022. There are a limited amount of rebates available so please inquire prior to your application. Please note that the gallon per flush rate of the new toilet must be LESS than the old toilet to qualify for the toilet rebate.

How much can you save?

If you currently have a 5 gallon per flush toilet and replace it with a 1.2 gallon toilet, based on 10 flushes per day, the savings are 13,505 gallons per year. At current water and sewer rates, that means an average annual reduction of $57.40 on your water bill and $30.51 on your sewer bill for a total savings of $87.91.

There is a limited number of rebates for toilet replacements and is on a first come first serve basis. Toilets must be purchased between January 1 and December 31, 2022. Amount of each rebate is $100. To qualify:
