Gasoline-Powered Leaf Blower Ban: Enforcement Starts May 15

To reduce noise and air pollution, homeowners and residential landscapers are prohibited from using gasoline-powered leaf blowers from May 15 through September 30. (Wilmette Village Code, Ch. 16, Sec. 16-115)

The Village notifies commercial landscapers of the ordinance and enforcement, but the Village needs residents help to reduce this nuisance. Please speak to your landscaping contractor about using battery or electric powered equipment. Please be a good neighbor and help prevent pollution.

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