Recycling old gas powered lawnmowers at RONA

Each year in Canada, around 80,000 tonnes of harmful emissions are released by gas-powered lawn equipment. By properly recycling old, polluting gas powered lawnmowers for a $50 instant rebate (limit of one per person) on selected new, eco-friendly models at a ‘Clean Air is a Yard Away’ event, consumers can save money and decrease air pollution in their community.  In 2011, Green Venture and RONA helped recycle enough highly polluting lawnmowers to save over 1 Tonne of greenhouse gas and smog forming emissions.
