Mississauga’s green program will cut emissions and noise when the grass is mowed

The City of Mississauga is set to go green when it is grass cutting time.

As part of the Green Tools pilot project, the City is converting all of its grass cutting and gardening equipment from gas and diesel-powered to battery-run devices.

The transition will take place over the next few years but the first of the machines will be officially rolled out next week.

New equipment includes two riding zero-turn mowers, a push mower, leaf blowers and trimmers.

The goal of the Green Tools project is to reduce carbon emissions by eliminating gas-fueled machines as called for in the City’s Climate Change Action Plan.

Other benefits include reduced noise and increased safety for the workers who will be using the new equipment.
