Turn in your gas mower for cordless electric; Save money and the planet

The Electric Lawn Mower Exchange Program allows residents to turn in their working gas-powered lawn mower and purchase a new cordless rechargeable electric mower at a discounted price. Using a typical gas mower for one year can pollute as much as a car driven for 22,000 miles. 

 

 

Registration is now open for residents living within the South Coast Air Quality Management District's (AQMD) jurisdiction, which includes all of Orange County, most of Los Angeles County (excluding the Antelope Valley), almost all of Riverside County, and the non-desert portion of San Bernardino County. Thanks to Councilman Parks for letting us know.

There are five models to choose from, with your cost being $100, $160 or $230 depending on the model you choose. There will be eight exchange locations scheduled.

 

The 14” Neuton® (24v) which has a retail value of $400 can be purchased for only $100.  The 19” Neuton® (36v) which has a retail value of $495 can be purchased for only $160.  The 19” Black & Decker (24v) which has a retail value of $350 can be purchased for only $100. The 19" Black & Decker (36v) which has a retail value of $445 can be purchased for only $160. The Black&Decker 19" self-propelled mower which has a retail value of $699 can be purchased for only $230.
