The best way to dispose of a lawn mower is to find someone who will reuse the unit or use the parts for other purposes. Lawn mower disposal does not necessarily involve simply throwing the unit away; if the engine is still in working order, it can be used for other purposes or on another mower, which keeps the engines out of landfills where oil and gasoline can leak out of the unit and contaminate the soil.
The rest of the mower can be brought to a recycling plant, where the metals and plastics can be reused or recycled to be used in other products.
If you cannot afford a lawnmower, we can donate one to you! We can also teach you how to service the equipment and use it safely.
