Clean Air is a Yard Away – Lawn Mower Exchange Events

Our April Clean Air is a Yard Away events were a success as reported by John Kernaghan on Open File Hamilton (May 5, 2011 – Folks clear the air by giving up trusted mowers).

Be sure to come out to our next event on Saturday May 14th from 10am to 4pm at RONA Parkdale (633 Parkdale Ave North in Hamilton).

Clean Air is a Yard Away events with RONA stores offer a $50 instant rebate on a new, eco-friendly model when an older gas powered lawnmower is turned in.  Please take out the fuel and oil and recycle these at a City of Hamilton Community Recycling Centre – then bring us the old lawnmower.

We’re doing this because Canadian’s gas powered lawn equipment dump about 80,000 tonnes of harmful emissions into our air yearly it is important to get these dirty old machines out of commission.  

Only with the help of our partners at RONA Waterdown, RONA Parkdale, and Green Circle Recycling in Waterdown can Green Venture offer this type of program.
