From March thru September, Metro Solid Waste, in partnership with the Metro Air Pollution Control District, accepts gasoline, electric and human-powered lawn maintenance equipment and replacement batteries.  Rebate vouchers are issued as proof of recycling so participants can receive the larger bonus rebate instead of the standard rebate when the vouchers are used for electric or human  powered.
