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.
What do you need to request a rebate?
- Completed Rebate Request Form.
- The original lawn equipment purchase receipt to qualify for a Standard Rebate without trade-in. Photocopies will not be accepted. Online purchases do not always come with a traditional receipt. We will accept the proof of purchase the online vendor provides.
- The original notarized green voucher from the recycling center (if you recycled a used gas appliance for new eligible equipment to qualify for a Bonus Rebate. (Photocopies are not accepted.)
- Proof of Metro Louisville / Jefferson County residency. (Photocopy of driver’s license or equivalent state ID.)
