Electric Lawn and Garden Equipment Replacement Incentives#
2023 Lawnmower Rebate Information

Mow Down Pollution Equipment Exchange Program#
YOU have the power to help clean up the air! Gas-powered lawn mowers emit greenhouse gases and contribute to ground-level ozone pollution. Electric mowers are quiet, start instantly, and don’t require gas, engine oil, fuel filters and other related maintenance. And, there are no fumes to breathe as you are mowing your lawn!
The Regional Air Quality Council's (RAQC) Mow Down Pollution (MDP) program generally accepts applications beginning in late April or May for vouchers toward the purchase of a new electric lawnmower in partnership with local retailers.
NEW! for 2023:
- Voucher Options:
- $75 voucher for handheld electric equipment (e.g., string trimmer, leaf blower): Recycling of a gas powered item is mandatory.
- $75 voucher for electric lawn mower: No recycling is necessary, as we want to encourage eco-friendliness.
- $150 voucher for electric lawn mower: Recycling of a gas mower is required.
- Fort Collins Participating Retailers (visit www.mowdownpollution.org for locations outside of Fort Collins):
- The Home Depot--both Fort Collins locations
- Ace Hardware--only the Harmony location
