Receive up to $125
The City of Toronto offers property owners and managers up to $125 cash back for each new high-efficiency (HE) commercial washer that is purchased or leased. Compared to conventional top-loading commercial washers, a new HE (front-loading) commercial washer can lower the cost of your annual water and energy bills by at least $860 per washing machine*.
