Professional Lawn Care Equipment Rebate Program


Maybe you're a landscaping pro, or maybe you just have a big yard. Either way, there probably hasn't been much electric equipment meets your needs -- until now. APCD is happy to offer rebates on professional-grade string trimmers, leaf blowers, and their batteries larger than 20.5v.

Two Ways to Get a Rebate
  1. Purchase your equipment, then 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.
  2. Through a participating retailer, who will give you your rebate up front as dollars off of the purchase price.
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).
  • Both gas-powered and electric equipment are eligible for trade-in rebate. 
  • 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.
  • Battery rebates apply only to individual battery purchases. Batteries that come with purchased mowers, string trimmers, or leaf blowers do not qualify for additional rebates.
  • You do not need to recycle a battery to buy a battery, but there is a limit of 4 battery rebates per string trimmer or leaf blower.
  • You do not have to be a lawn care professional to take part in this program.
