OKLAHOMA CITY – If you are in the market for a new lawn mower, the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality may help you save a little money.
The DEQ’s Air Quality Division is hosting a lawn mower exchange event on Saturday, April 25.
From 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., residents are encouraged to head to the OSU-OKC Farmers Market with their old gasoline-powered lawn mower.
At the event, visitors can exchange used, gasoline-powered lawn mowers that are in working condition for a $100 voucher toward the purchase of a new, electric lawn mower.
There are 100 vouchers available, which can be redeemed at the Black & Decker service center, located at 8507 S. Western Ave. in Oklahoma City.
In addition to the voucher, Black and Decker will offer 20 percent off on mowers purchased through the lawn mower exchange program.
Vouchers are limited to one per household.
Residents must live in the following counties:
- Canadian County
- Cleveland County
- Grady County
- Lincoln County
- Logan County
- McClain County
- Oklahoma County.
All gasoline mowers for exchange must be operational and drained of all gasoline and oil.
