Ban Leaf blowers in Walnut Creek, CA
We should not have to tolerate the deafening sound of leaf blowers outside our homes every single day of the week. Not only do they disturb the peace but according to Quiet Orinda, a group who is raising interest in the subject, they "pollute the air with unburned fuel and hydrocarbons." As well as pollute the air by blowing"matter containing animal fecal matter, molds, spores, fungi, diesel soot, and many allergens," into the air. Sign PetitionSign Petition
Being forced to tolerate this type of sound at the level it is produced, for extended hours, on a daily basis is unreasonable. I plan on bringing this petition to the city counsel as well as to the establishments that hire these services. There are alternatives that are cleaner, quieter and more considerate of the residents, whom the service is intended to assist.
