Lawnmower Rebate Helps Make the Air Cleaner, Yards Greener
Monday March 5, 2007
Get $100 to switch from gas-powered lawn equipment
March 5, 2007 (LOUISVILLE) – Louisville residents can make the air cleaner and their yards “greener” with the Lawn Care Rebate Program offered by the Kentuckiana Air Education program (KAIRE).
The program offers Louisville residents up to $100 for trading in a gasoline-powered mower toward the cost of an electric, battery or reel (manual) mower.
Rebates are available for other lawn maintenance equipment including electric string trimmers, leaf blowers, and replacement batteries. Instant rebates are available at local participating retail outlets, which are listed on the District’s website.
Equipment may be purchased and Standard Rebates (without gasoline-powered trade-in) requested any time of year, but the Louisville Metro Recycling Facilities only accept lawn care equipment for recycling (for Bonus Rebates with trade-in) from March 1 through September 30.
Nearly 4,000 Louisville residents have taken advantage of the rebate program since it began.
KAIRE is a community outreach effort of the Louisville Metro Air Pollution Control District. For more information call 574-5322 or visit the District’s website: www.louisvilleky.gov/APCD.
