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.

Note: The Program is Currently Paused

To ensure funding is available for participants who have already signed up, the program is paused for new applicants at this time. If you are already signed up, you will receive a voucher!  Just recycle your old gas-powered lawn mower and upload your proof of recycling here.

Please sign up here to join the wait list. We will let you know by the end of June if we are able to issue additional vouchers for this summer’s program.
