The Denver Regional Air Quality Council voted July 7 to ban the sale of gas-powered lawn equipment in the Denver metro area, according to a July 7 report from CBS Colorado. The Colorado Air Quality Control Commission will now vote on the plan in December.

The ban on sales of gas-powered OPE would go into effect in 2025 and would affect lawn mowers, leaf blowers and weed whackers. Use of gas-powered commercial equipment would be "limited" from June to August.
