The Town of Assiniboia has established a rebate program for the local purchase of Rain Barrels and Compost bins in an effort to recognize residents' efforts towards reducing water consumption and reducing organic waste material.

Households are eligible for one compost bin and one rain barrel rebate per year up to $100.00 per barrel/bin. To receive the rebate, residents must install the rain barrel and/or compost bin at the residence associated with their utility account.
