Ordinance #1157 began on January 1, 2022, and bans the use of gasoline-powered leaf blowers in San Anselmo. The Town has passed this ordinance due to concerns about the impacts of gas-powered leaf blowers on the environment, health, and noise pollution. Rebate ProgramIf you haven't made the switch to electric equipment yet, do not worry, we're here to help! The Town has created a rebate program that allows you to trade in your old, gas-powered leaf blower (drained of fluids, please) and in return, you can receive a rebate for the purchase of new, electric equipment of up to 50% to $150. More information about the program is available HERE. Hours of Operation Allowable hours of operation have been updated to come in-line with other Marin County jurisdictions. Beginning in 2022, the new hours of operation are:
Enforcement Starting on January 1st, 2022 and through June 30, 2022, anyone using a gas-powered leaf blower will be given a warning, with an explanation about the new regulations along with information about the rebate program. After June 30, 2022, if a warning has already been issued, a $100 citation will be issued. If additional violations are reported and confirmed, increasing citations of $200, and $500 may be issued.
To report usage of gas-powered leaf blowers during the hours of 9:00 to 5:00 pm Monday through Friday, you can call Town Code Enforcement: 415-258-4654 and leave a voicemail with the time and address of reported gas-powered leaf blower usage.
