The Brookline Police would like to take this opportunity to inform both landscapers and residents of several changes within the Town’s Noise By-Law. In particular and in light of the fact that we are entering the Fall season, we are providing you important information concerning the operation of leaf blowers. Set out below are pertinent sections concerning these machines:

  • No leaf blower shall be operated before 8:00A.M or later than 8:00P.M Monday through Friday. No leaf blower shall be operated before 9:00A.M or later than 8:00 P.M on the weekends and holidays.
  • All leaf blowers are to be operated as recommended by the manufacturer. No modifications to the machine are allowed.
  • In the event that a police officer or other Town employee observes that a leaf blower has been modified or damaged, or does not have the proper manufacturer’s or Town label, the operator will be instructed to have the machine tested by the Town.
  • Starting November 3rd inspections will be conducted by the Town at the DPW facility at 870 Hammond Street. They will continue every first and third Tuesday night from 5:00PM through 7:00PM. These inspections will determine whether or not the machines are in compliance with the acceptable noise levels as set out in the by-law. No appointments necessary. The by-law prohibits the use of leaf blowers that exceed 67db. Those machines that pass inspection will be furnished with a label indicating that they may be operated within Brookline.
  • Questions and information call the DPW at 617-646-2700.

The part of this by-law that applies to leaf blower noise levels and labeling are not in effect until 2010. In anticipation of these changes, the Town is offering these inspections this Fall free of charge. We are recommending that each of you check your leaf blowers for the proper manufacturer’s label indicating the noise level of the machine does not exceed 67 db. If it does, it will be illegal to use this machine in Brookline after January 1, 2010 and may subject you to a fine. If no label is attached, we strongly suggest you set up an appointment for testing at your earliest convenience.

Thank You.
