Yonkers, N.Y., bans gas-powered leaf blowers

Yonkers’ seasonal ban on gas-powered leaf blowers went into effect June 1 and will not be lifted until Sept. 30. The law was instated three years ago to reduce air pollution released from the exhaust.

Each year, local law enforcement delivers summonses to area landscapers and warnings residents detailing the parameters of the law. Any violators caught breaking the law will pay a $250 fine.
