The village of Scarsdale’s ban on the use of gas-powered leaf blowers continues this fall on weekends, Mondays and Federal holidays. Electric leaf blowers can still used throughout the year, weekdays 8 a.m. – 9 p.m., weekends 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
We know that many Scarsdale residents were happy for these polluting devices to be absent during the spring, and summer. Many residents, especially those who work from home have expressed their satisfaction at the law. Backyards have become a place of refuge and outdoor conversations are possible again.
