South Coast AQMD (SCAQMD) sponsors an annual program that helps clean the
air through the exchange of backpack leaf blowers. Commercial landscapers
and gardeners operating within the South Coast Air Basin can exchange old,
noisy, high-polluting backpack leaf blowers for new low-emission/low-noise
backpack leaf blowers available at a discounted price.
All old leaf blowers that are retired through this program are scrapped and
SCAQMD has scrapped more than 10,000 old, polluting leaf blowers to date.
The Leaf Blower Exchange Program reduces smog-forming pollutants by 88,282
pounds per year in the Southland.
