Lawn Equipment Exchange Program (LEEP) Event
Time: 5/21/2016 8:00:00 AM
Place: SA Recycling Center, 460 East Holton Road, El Centro, CA 92243
The Imperial County Air Pollution Control District is hosting a Lawn Equipment Exchange Program (LEEP) event on May 21, 2016 from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (noon) at the SA Recycling Center, where residents can turn in their gasoline-powered lawn equipment and purchase new rechargeable electric lawn equipment at a discounted price, made possible through the ICAPCD $200 rebate per exchanged piece of equipment.
Using a typical gas mower for one year can pollute as much as a car driven for 22,000 miles; therefore the purpose of the event is to replace high polluting lawn gas equipment with environmentally friendly electric lawn equipment.
For those interested in participating, pre-registration is required. Additionally, participants must be at least 18 years of age, exhibit proof of Imperial County residency, and bring a copy of their reservation form. There is a limit of one mower, trimmer, and leaf blower per household.
Fees for the LEEP event lawn equipment are as follows:
The Greenstation 18" Push Mower Badger $50.00 including tax
The Greenstation 20" Push Mower N-1 $100.00 including tax
Greenworks Electric Blower with 2ah battery and charger 80volt $120.00 including tax
Greenworks Electric String Trimmer with 2ah battery and charger 80 volt $165.00 including tax.
