Gasoline-Powered Leaf Blower Ban: Enforcement Starts May 15

Between May 15 and September 30, the Village of Wilmette prohibits the use of gasoline-powered leaf blowers. (Wilmette Village Code, Ch. 16, Sec. 16-115)

Based upon increasing concerns from the community regarding the adverse impacts of gas-powered leaf blowers, the Village of Wilmette has made it a priority to enforce the ban this summer. As such, there will be a dedicated staff member to address ordinance violations as they are observed or reported.

To report violations, please contact the Wilmette Police Department non-emergency line at 847-256-1200.
