Between June 1 and September 30, gasoline-powered blowers are prohibited entirely in the Village of Winnetka. Violation of the ordinance is subject to a $100 fine per occurrence. These restrictions also apply to the use of electric leaf blowers plugged into portable gasoline generators. If you employ landscapers, please make sure that they are aware of Winnetka’s leaf blower ordinance.
 
Between October 1 and May 31, gasoline-powered blowers may not be used between 7 PM - 8 AM, Monday through Friday, or 6 PM - 9 AM on Saturday and Sunday.

The leaf blower restrictions do not apply to golf course lawn upkeep, employees of the Village performing road maintenance, or electric leaf blowers plugged into normal electrical outlets.
