RDCK offers wood stove exchange rebate

The program is good for any pre-1994, uncertified wood stoves still in use.

Pitch your old wood stove in the dump and get a new one through the Regional District of Central Kootenay’s Wood Stove Exchange Program.

Any pre-1994, uncertified wood stoves still in active use qualify for the program, which the RDCK has collaborated on with other local municipalities since 2009.

Sixty-six rebates each valued at $350 are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Residents must replace the wood stove with a new, locally purchased EPA- or CSA-certified wood stove, gas stove, pellet stove or insert. The old stove, meanwhile, needs to be dismantled and brought to a local landfill or transfer station for disposal.

For a copy of the rebate application, visit rdck.ca.
