Lawn Care for Cleaner Air

One hour of mowing with a typical gas-powered lawnmower produces the same amount of air pollution as driving your car for 200 miles—enough to go from Louisville to Nashville. These emissions create pollution that is harmful to sensitive groups like children, elderly adults, and people with conditions like asthma.

The Lawn Care for Cleaner Air program encourages Louisville Metro residents to improve air quality by offering rebates when residents convert to lower-emitting equipment.

Learn more about the program in the 2022 LCCA Annual Report.
