The Clean Green Yard Machines Commercial Voucher Program (Commercial CGYM) provides incentives for the replacement of landscape maintenance equipment to lawn care providers, such as public agencies and private entities in the San Joaquin Valley.
Please review the program guidelines for complete information about requirements and eligibility.
The District has partnered with several dismantlers located throughout the San Joaquin Valley to fully implement the program in your area. Please view the following list of dismantlers to locate a dismantler near you.
You must first be approved and receive your voucher before destroying your equipment and/or purchasing your new equipment.
Eligible voucher amount is based on the purchase price of the landscape maintenance equipment and excludes additional costs such as taxes, fees, accessories and delivery charges. Actual reimbursement of funds to applicant may be reduced depending on final eligible invoiced costs. Enhanced incentives up to $400 for edgers, trimmers, chainsaws and pole saws are available to Public Schools located within the selected AB 617 Communities
