Lets Talk Trash – 2020 Wood Stove Exchange Program

qathet Regional District’s Wood Stove Exchange Program has been approved for 2020.


In 2019, qathet Regional District (qRD) was successful in becoming a part of the Wood Stove Exchange Program for the first time. The program, funded through the BC Lung Association and qRD, offers rebates to eligible residents to remove a non-EPA certified wood-burning appliance used for home heating and replace it with a cleaner heating option to reduce particulate matter in the atmosphere and improve air quality. The 2019 program exchanged 34 old, smoky wood stoves and paid out $14,500 in rebates. The qRD is excited to announce the continuation of the Provincial Wood Stove Exchange Program in 2020. The program is open to all residents and is offering $16,500 in available rebates. The 2020 program begins March 1, 2020.
