Puget Sound Wood Stove Program

PROGRAM UPDATE

  • Our grant-funded program is now processing new enrollments 
  • We ask that you follow state, county, and local public health guidelines to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
  • Please be patient when shopping around for new heating devices. Worldwide supply chain problems have reduced and slowed some equipment availability. It may be many weeks before your new heating equipment is available for installation.

Next Steps and Additional Information

Funding is limited; one project per household. The program is currently limited to homeowners or rental property owners. 

After being approved for the recycling program, qualified applicants will receive an Agency issued coupon and instructions for recycling their stove and receiving the $350 reward. Recycling participants have 45 days to recycle their stove at one of our designated recycling facilities. Recycling facility locations and contact information will be provided with the recycling coupon.

After being approved for the Snohomish County replacement discount program, qualified applicants will receive an Agency-issued coupon and instructions on the process for receiving the replacement discount. Replacement discount participants will have 45 days to schedule their clean-heating project and old stove/insert removal with a program-approved contractor. Installations do not have to be completed within the 45-day window. Worldwide supply chain problems have reduced and slowed some equipment availability. It may be many weeks before your new heating equipment is available for installation.

After the 45 days, recycling or replacement offers will be cancelled and offered to other qualified applicants, unless program staff have been contacted and approved an extension.
