Lawn Care Rebate Program

Clean air is an important part of staying healthy while outdoors. Gas- and diesel-powered lawn equipment produces emissions that affect our air quality. A typical gas lawnmower is estimated to produce 6 times the emissions as the average passenger vehicle. These emissions contribute to ground-level ozone and pollution, which can be harmful to children, the elderly, and those with respiratory conditions like asthma.

The City of Wichita's air quality program encourages Wichita area residents to reduce harmful lawn-related emissions by using cleaner electric, battery-operated, and self-propelled lawn equipment.

Up to $100 rebates are available for residents who purchase new non-combustion lawn equipment and recycle their old combustion equipment. Up to a $30 rebate is available for mulch blades, no recycling required.
