Lawnmower Recycling Program Free Discount Voucher

This is a great way to turn in your clunker and get a brand new lawnmower for cheap and help with air pollution at the same time.

The Ventura County Community Foundation (VCCF) oversees the Clean Air Fund, which was donated by Imation (formerly 3M), and is the source of funds for this lawn mower trade-in program. VCCF is a charitable foundation committed to promoting and enabling philanthropy, building long term capital to benefit Ventura County. Its four primary roles are to be a careful steward of the funds entrusted to its care, a long term partner dedicated to donor intent, an effective grantmaker focusing on the needs of nonprofits and of the community, and a community leader and convener, focusing on the common good. More information about VCCF is available at

Trade in any gas-powered lawn mower and get a huge discount on any electric mower at Lowe’s in Ventura or Simi Valley or order the 14 inch Neuton Cordless for only $89 or the 19 inch Neuton Cordless for $189 including free shipping.

Turn in your mower to either Oxnard Metal (805) 483-0512, Standard Industries in Ventura (805) 643-6669, or the Simi Valley Landfill and Recycling Center (805) 579-7267.

Ventura County Air Pollution Control District staff will issue you a voucher worth $129 off the price of a standard corded electric mower or $200 off the price of a cordless electric mower. Customer pays sales tax. Vouchers limited to one per household. Call (805) 645-1408 or download here a short voucher application. Please bring proof of residency e.g. DMV ID or utility bill.

My mom told me that anyone doing this should upgrade and get a cordless one. She said just one time of accidentally running over the cord and paying to have it repaired will make up the difference you pay ahead of time to get the more expensive model.

There are a few different mowers on the website to choose from!
