Ego 20" lawnmower was damaged.  Because the cost of repair was essentially equal to the cost of the new 21" mower, I bought a new mower.
What is the recommended way to dispose of the previous lawnmower? Any hazmat on board?

Where are you located? Perhaps one of our members on board locally to you could use it for spare parts. Reusing is a much better option the recycling. (Although Recycling is a great idea as well)

Was the issue with the motor or electronics?  Other than the battery, can't think of an HAZMAT that would preclude leaving it for bulk pick-up.  Or if you have a home depot near by, I'm not sure if they would take it, but if they are doing ego repair, it would be good for them to have a frank-en-mower on hand, if nothing else their technicians could take it apart for practice.

Sorry, turns out he's flying to MN, then driving.  Guess I'm tossing the effing EGO lawnmower in the trash.

Last ditch effort to keep it out of the landfill put in out by the curb and make a posting on your local craigslist under the free section. don't put a phone number or anything just say it's by the curb with a 'free' sign on it. It will usually be gone within a couple hours.

Merry Christmas!
