Clark County’s Department of Air Quality & Environmental Management has a fantastic program in place for those that care about the quality of our environment in Southern Nevada and are willing to do something about it. Now in its third year, the Lawn Mower exchange program gives Las Vegas real estate yard aficionados the opportunity to swap their gas powered lawn mowers for a clean-air electric mower that emits zero pollution. The program operates on a first come first serve basis so don’t hesitate if you would like to jump on board this year. In case you’re wondering how many Las Vegas home owners actually make this effort, we are happy to report that over 2,800 gas lawn mowers have been turned in since 2008. Can you believe it? This program is so eco-friendly that your old gas powered mower is even recycled for scrap metal when it’s destroyed! Las Vegas, Nevada is focusing more and more on green technologies and practices in both the public and private sector, and we are a cleaner and healthier community for it !!
