JUNE 21 – MOW DOWN AIR POLLUTION. 9AM-3PM. According to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, the engines in gas-powered lawn equipment pollute more than car engines. One hour of lawn mowing with a gas-powered lawn mower produces as much pollution as driving your car for four hours.

Mow Down Air Pollution* is a lawn mower exchange program where residents can trade gas powered lawn mowers for a discount on a new cordless electric lawn mower. Bring your gas mower to City Hall and receive a 50% discount on a new electric Neuton CE 5.2 Battery-Powered Mower for a total of: $198.61 plus $16.39 sales tax. All mowers MUST be in working condition and emptied of gas and oil in order to receive the discount. To participate, you must have a reservation. Please call Nicole Cooper at 214-670-6646 for more information.

Only open to Dallas residents and only 400 mowers available.

You know the problem with this deal is they don't tell you what they do with your old gas powerd lawnmower,here in Austin about a year ago, they had this at a Home Depot and I watched them put all the old gas powerd mowers on a trailer witch was hitched to a EasterSeals van and the van drove away with about 20 mowers on it,I followed the van to a public storage area and saw them place all the mowers inside.Later I asked an Easter Seal rep about that and he said that the city(Austin) gave them the mowers,witch is okay by me.I asked the city about this and I never could get a straight answer,but a Home Depot guy told me that they never actually destroy/scrap the mowers,they try and give them away to a nonprofit group who needs them.I was told by a metal scrapper that he could possible get about 35-50 cents for each if he scrapped them. :|
P.S. I'm sure every city does something like this but I wish they would give you a choice between electric or a reel mower.
