Town Reminds Residents About Leaf Blower Rules

Raking leaves might keep us safe from forest fires, but using a leaf blower outside of permitted hours could get you in trouble.

Town Supervisor Chad Lupinacci has issued a reminder that leaf blowers are limited to two hours a day during the week, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 7 p.m., and on weekends between 9 and 5 p.m.

Usage outside of those hours and time limitations will be deemed a noise disturbance.

“As you perform your fall cleanup projects, please adhere to the Town’s acceptable hours of operation for leaf blowers,” Lupinacci said. “The Town strives to balance the needs of property owners who wish to maintain their properties with the rights of residents who wish to enjoy their homes in peace.”

To file a leaf blower noise disturbance complaint, use the Town’s At Your Service portal on the Department of Public Safety page: http://www.huntingtonny.gov/public-safety

To speed up the Town’s ability to enforce Town Code, leaf blower noise disturbance complaints should include the following information:

  • Date(s) and approximate time(s) of violation(s)
  • Address where the violation is occurring
  • Whether it is known if the property owner or a landscaping company is operating the leaf blower
  • If a landscaping company is operating the leaf blower, if possible, include the name and any known/observed contact information for the company.
