Program Results

Since the Mow Down Pollution program launched in 2001:

  • A total of nearly 55,000 inefficient pieces of gas-powered lawn and garden equipment have been responsibly recycled
  • More than 2,000 metric tonnes of greenhouse gas and smog forming emissions have been prevented

During the spring 2011 event, Summerhill Impact collected more than 9,000 lawnmowers, string trimmers, hedge trimmers, leaf blowers and chainsaws in just 14 days at The Home Depot locations across Canada.
