Residential Rebates for Electric and Human-Powered Lawn Equipment
Louisville Metro Residency Requirement
The Lawn Care for Cleaner Air rebate program is only open to residents of Louisville/Jefferson County, Ky. You must provide a copy of your proof of residency (i.e. your driver’s license) to the participating dealer when purchasing new equipment or to APCD when submitting your mail-in rebate request. Failure to do so will result in not receiving a rebate.
Two Ways to Get a Rebate
- Through a participating dealer. Participating dealers give the rebates up front, as dollars off of the purchase price. This is the fastest way to get a lawn care rebate!
- Individually. If you are purchasing your eligible equipment at a non-participating dealer, use this Rebate Request Form to request a Bonus or Standard Rebate. If your rebate request meets all the requirements, you should receive your rebate within 60 days.
Other Conditions on Equipment Eligibility
- No rebate can exceed the purchase price of equipment.
- All eligible equipment must be purchased new or factory reconditioned.
- Trade-in equipment must be similar to the new eligible electric, reel, or battery-powered equipment that will be purchased with a Bonus Rebate (e.g., a mower for a mower, a battery for a battery).
- Only batteries used in the cordless electric equipment that is eligible for a rebate under this program will qualify for rebates. No rebate will be given for batteries used in gas-powered equipment.
- Trade-in equipment must be taken to one of the three Louisville Metro recycling centers listed below. Some participating dealers accept replacement batteries for trade/recycling when a new battery is purchased. Only the Waste Reduction Center at 636 Meriwether Avenue is currently accepting all battery types. Please call ahead to other locations for up-to-date battery-recycling information.
- Old equipment must be drained of gas and oil prior to trade-in. Drained oil may be taken to staffed recycling centers, including Metro Recycling Centers #1 and #2 listed below. Gasoline and gas/oil mixtures can be taken to the Haz Bin on Grade Lane.
