Clark County launches lawn mower exchange to clear the air

Clark County is launching a lawn mower exchange program Monday in an effort to help reduce air pollution.

The county's program is designed to help reduce the amount of ground-level ozone pollution during hot summer months.

The lawn mower exchange program, under the Department of Air Quality and Environmental Management, will begin on Monday when applications from county residents will be accepted.

Those with high-polluting gasoline-powered lawn mowers will be able to exchange them for non-polluting Neuton electric mowers.

The lawn mower program is funded by a grant from the Emissions Control Department of the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles.

More information and an application form will be available through the county's Web site.
