The City wants to help you keep our air clean. From May 1 – July 31, 2016, we’re offering residents up to $50 in rebates. You can save when you purchase “clean” lawn and garden equipment from participating local retailers, hire a clean lawn service, or when you purchase a “clean” lawnmower and recycle a polluting gas lawnmower.  Online purchases are not eligible.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is eligible?

Fort Collins residents who purchase "clean" lawn and garden equipment or sustainable lawn care services are eligible for rebates up to a maximum of $50 per applicant. Residency is determined by having a physical address within the City limits.

Can I get a $25 rebate for just recycling an old mower?

No.  You can only get the additional $25 rebate for recycling an old gas powered mower if you also purchase a "clean" mower during the rebate period and with a valid purchase stamp on your form from a participating local business.

Do I have to recycle an old gas mower to be eligible for this program?

 

No, if you purchase a qualifying "clean" lawnmower or “clean” lawn and garden piece of equipment or sustainable lawn care services and don’t recycle an old mower, you are still eligible for this program.

 

Can I buy a mower on-line or from a non-participating retailer, and recycle my old mower, and still get the rebates?

No, Fort Collins residents must purchase their mower from a participating Fort Collins retailer. Online purchases are not eligible.

How long does it take to get the rebate check?

 

Once the City’s Environmental Services Department receives your completed Rebate Form, it could take up to three weeks for the rebate to be processed and mailed to your address.
