Ban on Leaf Blowers Goes into Effect for Summer; Exhaust Equivalent to 8 Cars PDF Print Email
Written by   
dustlgforamtted

June 1, 2011:  An annual rite of summer begins on June 1.  On this day (today) the leaf-blower ordinance goes into effect, banning the use of gas-powered leaf blowers from June 1 to September 30.  The ordinance is designed to protect residents from unnecessary air and noise pollution during the summer months.

Sixteen Westchester County municipalities have leaf-blower ordinances in effect, including Bronxville.  This is the first year that Tuckahoe has joined the ban.

To report violations of the ordinance, contact the Bronxville Police Department at 914-337-0500.

According to the American Lung Association, a single leaf-blower engine produces exhaust equivalent to that of eight cars.  The exhaust is unfiltered and contains numerous hazardous air pollutants and airborne carcinogens.  The developing lungs of young children and the aging lungs of adults and residents with lung and cardiac disease are particularly vulnerable.

For additional information, please contact Molly Roffman, chair of the Yonkers Green Policy Task Force, at 914-486-8125.
