Air district offers mower exchange program

By
March 14, 2011 |

The Yolo-Solano Air Quality Management District, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District and the California Air Resources Board are co-sponsoring a mower exchange program for residents of Yolo and Solano counties.

The program aims to makes it easy and convenient to trade-in a polluting, gas-powered mower for a new cordless, rechargeable and more environmentally friendly mower at a reduced price. The program begins with online registration on April 5. There are a limited number of mowers, so vouchers will be given on a first-come, first-served basis.

“Rechargeable mowers produce no on-site emissions, are lighter, quieter and easy to use,” Mat Ehrhardt, executive director of the Yolo-Solano air district, said in a news release.

“Participants can choose between two sizes. The 14-inch cut model is $149 (regular retail price $399) and the 19-inch cut model is $249 (regular retail price $499). Both are a great buy in this economy and the shipping is free.”

In addition, the Neuton mower includes three discharge options for grass clippings: use the rear grass bag, the side discharge chute or install the mulching plug to leave the nutrients on your lawn.

To participate in the mower exchange, follow these three steps:

* Go online: On April 5, beginning at 6 a.m., register online at http://www.neutonpower.com/YS to reserve a rechargeable mower and receive a voucher and instructions on how to turn in your gas-powered mower. For those without Internet access, call (800) 463-4958.

* Drop off: Qualified residents drop off a gas-powered mower at a participating recycler.

* Deliver: Qualified residents arrange payment with the manufacturer and a new mower is delivered to their home.

After residents call to confirm a mower reservation, they are given ample time to drop off their gas mower at a participating local recycling center — Davis Waste Removal or the Yolo County Central Landfill.

For details on the mower, visit http://www.neutonpower.com/ys. For details on the program, call the Yolo-Solano air district at (530) 757-3650 or visit http://www.ysaqmd.org.
