San Diego County's annual "Mowing Down Pollution" lawn equipment trade-in event will take place Saturday, May 13, at the Qualcomm Stadium parking lot.

You can exchange your gas-powered lawn mower or other lawn equipment for new electric models at discounted prices.  

The event runs from 8:00 a.m. until noon in the northwest section of the parking lot.  Organizers recommend you arrive early because of high demand.  The stadium gates open at 4:30 a.m. 

The program has been successfully lowering harmful air pollution emissions since 1999, according to the County Air Pollution Control District.

More information is available through the County of San Diego.
