Commercial Garden Equipment Incentive & Exchange Program


Commercial gardeners and landscapers, local government agencies, school districts and colleges, and non-profit organizations may trade in their operable gasoline- or diesel-powered piece of lawn or garden equipment to one of the 6 participating manufacturers' dealer locations to get credit towards the purchase price of a commercial battery electric lawn and garden equipment. The participating dealers will test the old equipment for operability, responsibly drain all fluids, before sending to licensed dismantlers who will permanently destroy the old equipment.
