The South Coast AQMD is conducting a leaf blower exchange program through which professional gardeners and/or landscapers can trade in their old (but operational) backpack leaf blower to get a new STIHL BR 500 leaf blower for only $200.
This is the powerful low-noise 65 dB(A), low-emissions model with a suggested retail price of $469. Up to ten blowers per business who live and work within the South Coast AQMD’s 4-county jurisdiction can be exchanged at the following locations in the Burbank area: November 20 – So Cal Turf & Tractor (Sun Valley); November 21 – Lawnmower Corner (Pasadena); and November 28 – Simon’s Lawnmower (North Hollywood).
From our friends at Burbank Green Alliance
It would be even better if the exchange was not for another leaf blower but for a vacuum or an incentive to trade it in and not use it.
