Boone Wants Your Old Toilet--For Cash PDF Print
Written by Steve Frank   
Thursday, 07 July 2011 05:27

The Town of Boone wants your old toilet.  Really, they do—and they’re willing to pay.  One hundred bucks per commode—up to three for homeowners in the town.  Boone is adding “WaterSense” high-efficiency toilet rebate program to their ‘every drop counts’ program, according to Lane Weiss of the town of Boone, who said they researched programs in Cary, Raleigh and Durham, and tailored a program they hope will work in Boone.    She said that they are looking to replace 1.6 gallon per flush and higher toilets with 1.2 gallon toilets, paying $100 per toilet for residential—up to three—and $50 per for commercial—up to 10.  The other savings for those who pay the bills—and for the town—saving water.  For information, call 268-6250 or go to www.townofboone.net.  Lane Weiss can be emailed at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
