No Lawn Equipment Exchange Events are planned at this time. Additional information will be posted on this webpage when available. 

The "Mowing Down Pollution" Lawn and Garden Trade-in Program successfully lowered harmful air pollution emissions by almost 50 tons per year since its inception in 1999. Through annual exchange events held through 2018, San Diego County residents replaced almost 10,000 units of gas-powered lawn equipment with zero-emission electric-powered units.
