The topic of gas-powered leaf blowers has become an important topic of debate here in Montclair. Back in July 2023, a proposal was brought up for discussion by the Montclair Town Council. The proposal talked about a plan to completely ban gas-powered leaf-blowing devices. As a result, the proposal temporarily banned gas-powered leaf blowers from May 16th through October 14th, these devices have been banned. More recently, a new proposal was approved which altogether banned the use of gas-powered leaf blowers completely starting on October 15th, 2023. With this new change to take place in Montclair, The Montclair Girl has put together a list of landscaping companies that provide electric-powered leaf-blowing services to coordinate with these new town regulations. Read on for a list of where to inquire about electric-powered leaf-blowing services in Montclair and its surrounding North Jersey and Essex County areas.
