Mow Down Pollution: Lawn Mower Exchange

 

YOUR OLD MOWER’S DAYS ARE NUMBERED.

The Regional Air Quality Council is teaming up with Black and Decker and local partners to host three Mow Down Pollution lawn mower exchange events in 2016.  We invite you to pre-register for a new Black and Decker cordless electric lawn mower and choose whether you will bring an old gas-powered mower to recycle.  Please select the date that works best for you schedule and you will be taken to the registration form.  Please note pre-registration is required and supplies are limited.

Saturday, April 30th, 2016
Budweiser Events Center
Fort Collins/Larimer County

Saturday, May 27th, 2016
Dick’s Sporting Goods Park

Saturday, June 4th, 2016
South Denver Metro – Location TBD

 

Once you pre-register we will pre-order your new mower for you and have it ready for you to pay for and pick up during a designated time window on the date that you select – you may drop off your drained, gas-powered mower at the same time.  We will also be offering discounted pricing on Black and Decker’s electric garden tools such as trimmers, blowers/vacuums, chainsaws, and hedge trimmers.

 

 WITH OR WITHOUT AN OLD MOWER TO RECYCLE, YOU’LL GET A GREAT PRICE.

The Regional Air Quality Council is currently working with Black and Decker on models and pricing for the lawn mowers and lawn and garden equipment that will be offered for sale at the 2016 events.  Last year, we offered the following:

Black and Decker’s CM1936Z model — a 19″ 36V rechargeable mulching/bagging cordless electric lawn mower — usually retails for $430. When you bring us a drained gas-powered mower to recycle, you’ll pay only $190. Without a trade-in, you’ll pay just $240. (2015 Model & Pricing, 2016 Model & Pricing TBD).

Black and Decker’s CM1640 model — a 16″ 40V lithium rechargeable bagging cordless electric lawn mower — usually retails for $350. When you bring us a drained gas-powered mower to recycle, you’ll pay only $170. Without a trade-in, you’ll pay just $220. (2105 Model & Pricing, 2016 Model & Pricing TBD).

 TOGETHER, WE’LL MOW DOWN POLLUTION.

Gas-powered lawn mowers and lawn equipment contribute to nearly 10 percent of the Denver area’s ozone pre-cursor emissions. By switching to these eco-friendly alternatives, you can make a significant impact on our air quality and health for years to come.

*GAS-POWERED MOWERS MUST BE DRAINED OF OIL AND GAS TO BE RECYCLED.*
