Find green business solutions
If you are a Valley resident, you can get a great deal on a Neuton cordless electric lawn mower during the Valley Air District’s “Clean Green Yard Machines” program. Through the program, which runs April 21 to May 31 (while supplies last), you can call the Valley Air District offices to request a program voucher. The voucher will give you detailed instructions on how you can trade-in your old gas-powered, polluting lawn mower to receive a no emissions, Neuton cordless electric lawn mower at a huge discount. Neuton and the Valley Air District are offering this mower, which normally retails at $418.95, for only $150 with the trade-in of a used, polluting mower. The Neuton mower includes a 14” adjustable cutting blade, mulching kit, and two-year warranty. Visit or for more information
