According to Rye City Code, you are not allowed to operate leaf blowers between May 1st and September 30th.

The code says in part:

“No person shall operate within the City of Rye any gasoline or electric leaf blower between May 1 and September 30 every year … As used in this subsection, “leaf blower” shall be defined to include any device powered by a electricity, gasoline, diesel or similar fuel engine which is used, designed or operated to produce a current of air for the purpose of pushing, propelling or blowing leaves, dirt, gardening and grass clippings and cuttings, refuse or debris.”

The leaf blower ban does not apply to municipal, schools, religious institutions, membership clubs, golf courses, hospital and retirement communities, cemeteries, and driveway/road paving and sealing activities.

Wishing you peace and quiet until October 1st.
