Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Question:
How can one dispose of an old lawn mower, or, more preferably, recycle.



ANSWER:
Thank you for using our website. If your lawn mower is gas powered, please have the oil and gas drained, then recycle the rest at a scrap metal recycling shop (locate a recycler from our business recycling link below). Please recycle the oil and the gas at one of our household hazardous waste(HHW) and electronic waste(E-Waste) collection events or permanent centers (see link below).

Also, please check with the South Coast Air Quality Management District(AQMD) for ongoing lawn mower exchange programs (see link below).

If your lawn mower is electric, you may recycle it as E-Waste at one of our HHW/E-Waste collection events or permanent centers (see link below).
