I need a new lawn mower and want to be environmentally friendly. What are my options?

Old Fashioned Manual (Reel) Lawn Mower

The old fashioned manual (reel) lawn mower has been updated for modern times. They are now made of both lightweight and sturdy materials. Some models feature pneumatic tires, blade height settings, and even an adjustable handle length. The reel-mounted horizontal blades gives an exceptional cut by slicing the grass against a lower rigid bar. These oldie but goodie mowers are also known for being very quiet while operating and also give off no pollution (unlike your typical gas lawn mower). They are especially useful for tiny or smaller lawns. 

Battery Operated Walk-Behind Lawn Mower

The battery operated walk-behind lawn mower tends to be a better choice than the reel if cutting a lawn that is more than 4000 square feet. Some of these battery operated mowers can hold a long charge allowing you to cut up to two-thirds of an acre in a single charge. Battery operated lawn mowers are more quiet than your gas powered lawn mower and they tend to be very low maintenance. They might also be referred to as battery-powered lawn mowers or electric lawn mowers.

Some Reasons You Should Recycle Your Old Lawn Mower

Does your garage have a non-running lawn mower, tiller, or other large lawn equipment just taking up space? It seems to be common for people to stash old broken equipment in their sheds or garages because they simply do not know what to do with it once they no longer use it.

There are many reason you should recycle your old lawn equipment. Here are just a few that come to mind…

  • It’s in the way! You should recycle your old lawn equipment because you may not use it anymore and it’s just taking up too much space.
  • It’s environmentally friendly to recycle your old lawn equipment and not throw it into the trash. If you do throw it away it will just end up in a landfill.
  • Most lawn mowers can be refurbished and put to use again. So why not recycle it and allow someone else to bring it back to life, instead of throwing it into the garbage.
  • It’s really easy to do with Indy Lawn Mower Recycle! Indy Lawn Mower Recycle picks up your old lawn mower and other equipment for you. Most people do not have a way to transport this stuff (especially riding lawn mowers). All you need to do is set the item out front up near the house and they swing by to pick it up for you. Easy!
