City’s lawn care equipment rebate program returns

By The Active Age | February 29, 2024

The City of Wichita is offering rebates of up to $100 for the replacement of gas- and diesel-powered lawn care devices with new electric or battery-powered equipment.
The rebates are available for residents of Wichita and surrounding counties 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.
According to a news release from the city, emissions from gas- and diesel-powered lawn equipment 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 receives grant funding from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) through the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to provide education, outreach, and programming to the public on air quality and health. It’s the third year for the rebate program.
