Toilet Rebate Program

Toilet rebates: Thanks to a measure approved by the Gwinnett Board of Commissioners, Gwinnett water customers can get a rebate for replacing the toilet/toilets in their single family residential home.

Only WaterSense certified toilets that use 1.28 gallons per flush (gpf) or less will qualify for a rebate. The current rebate amount is $100.00 per toilet. The option for a $50.00 rebate for toilets using 1.6 gpf ended on December 31, 2011.

Only single family residential homes built before 1993 are eligible for the rebate for a maximum of two toilets per household. Also, only toilets purchased after September 28, 2007, are eligible for the rebate. The rebate is a lump sum amount as stipulated above and excludes the Georgia sales tax, additional installation parts, or labor costs.

Details of the program and applications can be found on the Metropolitan North Georgia Water Planning District website, www.northgeorgiawater.com. Customers may also request an application by calling 404.463.8645 or e-mailing toiletrebate@northgeorgiawater.org.

Funds for this program are limited, but the County's intention is to set aside funds for the rebate program each year. Rebates will be given on a first-come, first-served basis. Customers who do not receive rebates this year are encouraged to reapply next year provided funds are available.

Toilet recycling

Gwinnett County residents now have a free option for recycling old toilets.

As part of our Toilet Rebate Programs, the Gwinnett County Department of Water Resources is offering toilet recycling to homeowners and renters. Bring your old and broken porcelain toilets to the Department of Water Resources Central Facility located at 684 Winder Highway in Lawrenceville for recycling. You must remove the toilet seat and any plastic parts, including handles.

The facility will accept toilets for recycling at any time. From 7:00am to 5:00pm, Monday through Friday, you may access the bin from our main entrance on Winder Highway.  After business hours and on weekends, access is only available from the Hosea Road entrance.  Please click here for an after-hours drop off map.  There will be signs directing you to the collection bin.
