Greeley’s GROW recycling center is temporarily closed, as the contract with the service provider expired. It is expected that a new contractor will be in place by March 1, 2012. One of the requirements of the toilet rebate program is to take the old toilet out to the GROW recycling center to be presented with a voucher to receive more rebate money.
Until a new recycling contractor is identified, customers may bring toilets to the City Hall Annex at 1100 10th Street. The customer must first go to the Water and Sewer Department on the third floor to get their voucher and apply for the rebate. The customer will then be shown to the drop-off location in the parking lot. The Water Department will then send the toilets to the Streets Department to be ground-up and recycled into road base. Customers are required to remove all non-ceramic part and unload the toilet themselves.
Recycling toilets gives applicants an additional $25 dollar rebate, for a total of $75. Additional money is given to assure that the toilet is not re-installed in another location. The purpose of the rebate program is to remove old fixtures that use more water. No rebate is provided for recycling only.
Full 2012 water conservation rebate information is available on the City’s website at www.greeleygov.com/rebates. Paperwork for products purchased in 2011, must be received by January 13, 2012 to be eligible for a rebate.
