Southeast Air Quality Partnership Lawn Mower Trade-In May 7

The Air Quality Partnership of the Delaware Valley will hold a gasoline-powered lawn mower turn in event May 7 at the Springfield Township High School parking lot in Montgomery County starting at 9:30.
            The event also kicks off the 2011 Ozone Season by recognizing Upper Merion Township and GlaxoSmithKline with Air Quality Excellence Awards.
            Participants dropping off gasoline lawn mowers will be able to purchase a new electric or battery-powered Black and Decker mower at the event at a discount.
            The Air Quality Partnership is a program of the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission, which educates residents about the dangerous effects of ground-level ozone, and provides air quality forecasts to the public.
            Gas-powered lawn mowers are a major contributor to ground-level ozone, and purchasing an electric mower is just one way the public can help the environment. 
            To sign-up for air quality forecasts and alerts, and for tips on how to reduce air pollution, visit the Partnership's newly redesigned website.
