Water Conservation Credit Program
Beginning June 1, 2014, Garland Water Utilities offers two new Conservation Credit Programs to its residential customers. These programs apply a credit to a customer's account when they purchase a qualifying low-flow toilet(s) and/or water efficient clothes washing machine. Applicants must own or reside in the property where the installation of the qualifying item is to be installed and their utility account must be in good standing. This program is for residents only; tenant and commerical requests will not be eligible. No participant shall receive more than $500 from the City of Garland's Water Conservation Program(s) for any combination of eligible items.
Water Conservation Credit Program for High Efficiency Toilet (HET)
Garland Water Utilities offers a credit to a customer's account when they purchase a new high efficiency toilet, complete the program application and meet its criteria. Applications must be received within 120 days of purchase of the eligible product.
The program limits the purchase and installation of three (3) new toilets with a credit of $100 for the first toilet, $75 for the second and $50 for the third.
Water Conservation Credit Program for High Efficiency Clothes Washing Machine
Garland Water Utilities offers a credit to a customer's account when they purchase a new water efficient washing machine, complete the program application and meet its criteria. Applications must be received within 120 days of purchase of the eligible product. Credit for the purchase and installation of a new high energy efficient washing machine is based on a three tier compensation table relating to the level of its efficiency. A credit of $125 is given to washing machines in Tier 3, $100 for Tier 2 and $75 for Tier 1. For a list of qualifying machines visit the Consortium for Energy Efficiency website.
Customers interested in participating in the programs will need to complete the appropriate application and mail it along with required proof of purchase documents. Once the application has been received, it will be reviewed to ensure the item(s) purchased qualifies and the terms of the agreement have been met. If the application is approved, the appropriate credit will be posted to the customer's account.
Participants can dispose of their old toilet(s) by setting it out on their Bulky Waste Pickup Day or by taking it to either the Transfer Station or to the C.M. Hilton Landfill. Old washing machines can be placed out on customer's Bulky Waste Pickup Day (machine must be placed separate from other bulky waste or brush) or it can be taken to the scrap metal recycling bin at the Transfer Station.
