Find an Electric lawn Mower


Welcome to the Mow Down Pollution Lawn Mower Replacement 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 on the health and well-being of our communities.

The Program

In order to reduce ground-level ozone and improve air quality, the RAQC’s Mow Down Pollution – Lawn Mower Replacement program offers $150 vouchers to assist and motivate Front Range residents to recycle and replace their gas-powered lawn mowers with electric-powered lawn mowers.

Program Status

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

Announcing our Larimer County Fall 2022 program! Thanks to funding from Larimer County and Ace Hardware, we are launching a new Larimer County specific program in the fall of 2022 for electric chainsaws, line trimmers, leaf blowers, and other fall equipment. We are offering $100 vouchers towards qualifying equipment for residents who recycle any gas powered lawn and garden equipment (does not need to be the same as the item purchased). $50 vouchers will be available to residents who don’t have equipment to recycle. 

We will also be holding an in-person trade-in event on October 22nd from 9am – 1pm a the Loveland Ace Store.

Check back soon for a link to claim your Larimer County voucher!

A limited number of lawn mower vouchers are still 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.
