In an effort to create cleaner air in Southern California, the South Coast Air Quality Management is sponsoring the Electric Lawnmower Exchange, a program where residents can bring in their gasoline-powered lawnmowers and get a discounted price on the purchase of an electric-powered mower.
The program is open to all residents of Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties. Persons wanting to participate can register beginning Wednesday, April 16. Registered participants can then attend any of the scheduled exchange events being held from May to July.
For more information about the lawnmower exchange program or to register, log on to the District's website at www.aqmd.gov/tao/lawnmower.html or call 1.888.425.6247.
