Clean Air Programs - AQMD
Lawnmower Exchange Program for Residents
The Southern California Air Quality Management District (AQMD) offers discounted prices on electric lawnmowers at their annual "Mow Down Air Pollution" Lawnmower Exchange Program.  This Program allows residents living within the AQMD's four-county jurisdiction to turn in their working gas-powered lawn mower and purchase a new cordless rechargeable electric mower at a greatly reduced price. 

Events are held at multiple locations in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties. To participate, residents must pre-register for one of the events. 

To register, visit:
The Electric Lawn Mower Exchange Program or call (800) 425-6247.

Leaf Blower Exchange Program for Professional Gardeners and Landscapers
Older leaf blowers are exchanged for low-polluting and lower noise models.  The Program is open to professional gardeners and landscapers who live and work in AQMD's four-count jurisdiction. This includes most of Los Angeles County (excludes Antelope Valley), all of Orange County, most of Riverside County, and non-desert San Bernardino County.

The 2017 Commercial Leaf Blower Exchange Program will be available early summer (May/June) and will provide an opportunity to exchange a commercial gasoline-powered backpack leaf blower for a zero emission, battery-powered blower or low emission gasoline-powered blower. Pre-registration will be required to secure your exchange date and location.

For more information, visit:
The Commercial Leaf Blower Exchange Program or call (888) 425-6247 (Tuesday-Friday).

You can add your name to a list to receive information on the 2017 Program, by visiting the Sign Up page, and selecting the Leaf Blower Exchange Program. Pre-registration is required to secure your exchange date and location.
