Improving Air Quality Along Colorado’s Front Range:
The Mow Down Pollution Program

The Problem

Gas-powered lawn mowers and lawn equipment emit greenhouse gases and contribute to ground-level ozone pollution in the Denver Metro/North Front Range area. By switching to an electric lawn mower, you can make a positive impact on our air quality and human health.

The Program

In an effort to reduce ground-level ozone and improve air quality, the RAQC’s Mow Down Pollution – Lawn Mower Exchange program provides vouchers to assist individuals and organizations who choose to recycle and replace their gas-powered lawn mowers with rechargeable or corded electric-powered lawn mowers. 

Program Status

As of September 2022, our 2022 funding is depleted. Thank you for a successful year!

A limited number of vouchers are available for Weld County residents only through a dedicated revenue source. If you are a Weld County resident, please use the link below. Other signups won’t be accepted until the 2023 program begins.
