Residential toilet rebate application

Did you know that inside a typical household, more water is used for flushing toilets than for any other purpose? The City of Santa Cruz offers a rebate of up to $150 for WaterSense certified toilets, both High Efficiency Toilets (maximum 1.28 gallons per flush or dual flush) and Ultra High Efficiency Toilets (maximum 1.0 gallons per flush).

High Efficieny Toilets (maximum 1.28 gallons per flush or dual flush) must replace an older toilet with 3.5 gallons per flush or more in order to qualify for a rebate. Ultra High Efficiency Toilets (maximum 1.0 gallons per flush) can replace any toilet and still qualify for a rebate. Read the rebate application for all the details.

To apply for a High Efficiency or Ultra High Efficiency Toilet rebate:WaterSense logo

1. Fill out and sign the residential toilet rebate application.

2. Attach the original receipt or plumber's invoice for the toilet.

3. Bring in or mail your application to the City of Santa Cruz Water Conservation Office, 212 Locust St. Suite B, Santa Cruz, CA 95060.

To find out how toilet models are rated in terms of flushing performance, check the Maximum Performance of Toilet Fixtures for WaterSense-certified high efficiency and dual flush toilets. The higher the rating, the better the flushing performance. We recommend selecting a model with a MaP flush rating of 350 or higher.

Recycling: City residents may recycle old toilets at the city recycling center on Dimeo Lane. There is no charge for recycling, but it is requested that the seat and all hardware be removed prior to drop off. County residents may recycle old toilets at the Buena Vista landfill for a small fee.
