Cooler Concord, in partnership with CSEC and Quiet Communities, is proud to announce a Lawn Mower Swap Event here in Concord! The event will run from 9am to 1pm on September 23rd. It will take place at the Recycling Center at 133 Keyes Road, right next to the Department of Public Works.
The event is open to all Concord residents, who will be able to test out electric lawn care equipment and hear from local sustainable lawn care experts. Additionally, residents will be able to recycle their used, gasoline-powered mowers in return for a discount on a new, highly-recommended electric model.
Up to one-hundred Concord residents who pre-register for the event and “swap” a used, gas-powered mower will be eligible for a rebate of up to 35%, subsidized by Cooler Concord and Home Depot, to put towards a new EGO push or self-propelled electric mower. These mowers are highly rated by Consumer Reports, and will be in short supply as we anticipate high interest for this event, so be sure to register for your new mower today or before the registration deadline of August 31st. While registration to reserve a mower is for Concord residents only and will be closed in a few weeks, we highly encourage you to attend the event even if you have not registered for a mower or are not a Concord resident.
Be on the lookout for more information about this event, and for more sustainable lawn care tips from Cooler Concord. Be sure to check out our recent article in the Concord Journal , which introduces the upcoming event and explains the environmental and financial costs and benefits of gas-powered and electric lawn care equipment.
