    South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) has established a residential Electric Lawn Mower Rebate Program to offset the cost of an electric lawn mower.  This program will be available to residents within the SCAQMD’s four-county jurisdiction.  Through the Electric Lawn Mower Rebate Program, participants can purchase a new electric lawn mower either online or from a manufacturer-authorized retailer or dealer, including hardware and home improvement stores.  The program will allow residents to turn in their old gasoline lawn mower to an approved dismantler (PDF, 407KB) for permanent destruction and receive a rebate based on the purchase price of a new battery operated electric lawn mower:
