Yonkers' Leaf Blower Ban 

Leaf Blower Ban 

In 2007, the City of Yonkers enacted a Leaf Blower Ban which is in effect each year from June 1 through September 30th.

The use of gas-powered leaf blowers is a violation of the Yonkers City Code Section 91-31 and is intended to protect the public health by reducing air pollution.

Failure to comply with the ban is punishable as a Class II offense with fines ranging from $250 to $5,000. To report violations during weekday hours of 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., call Yonkers Code Enforcement at (914) 377-6669. To report violations on evenings and weekends, call the Yonkers Police Department at (914) 377-7900.
