Additional Community Events

In additions to HRCA events, there are many local non-profits who host events in Highlands Ranch and the surrounding areas. We post these events here for your convenience.

Mow Down Pollution

Overview: Gas powered lawn mowers and lawn equipment contribute nearly 10% of the Denver metro area’s ozone pre-cursor emissions. The Mow Down Pollution lawn mower exchange program helps area residents get rid of their old gasoline powered mowers, and switch to environmentally friendly electric mowers. Since 2006 we have recycled 2,428 gas mowers and put 3,292 electric mowers to work!

How it Works: Participants register at mowdownpollution.org, for one of the three events happening in the Denver metro area. Two models of discounted Black+Decker electric mowers are available, and pricing is determined from a combination of chosen model, sales tax, and trade in.
Participants with old gasoline mowers to recycle will receive additional discounts on their new electric mower. Please note, ALL GASOLINE MOWERS TO BE TRADED IN MUST HAVE THE LIQUIDS DRAINED PRIOR TO ARRIVAL AT THE EVENT. NO MOWERS WILL BE ACCEPTED WITH OIL OR GAS IN THEM. 

Logistics: Each event takes place on a Saturday, typically from about 9am – 3pm. The events will be held in the parking lots of the Budweiser Event Center on 4/29/17, Dicks Sporting Goods Park on 5/6/17, and Eco-Cycle’s CHaRM facility on 6/3/17. Participants arrive at the event at a pre-determined time (chosen during registration) and never have to leave their vehicles! If they bring an old mower, it is carried from their vehicle and the new mower is loaded up.

Additional Offerings: Participants also have the option of buying electric lawn equipment (trimmers/edger’s/blowers). The new electric lawn and garden accessories will ship directly to the customer, and not be available for same day pickup.
