Leaf blowers blow

WHY are companies allowed to use leaf blowers???  They stink, they are loud, they blow grit into pedestrians’ eyes, and they just BLOW THE LEAVES INTO THE STREET, where they block the sewer grates. We have enough problems with leaves blocking the storm drains without the maintenance folks adding more. What the heck is wrong with people? The City spends hundreds of thousands of dollars sucking out the storm drains, digging out rotting leaves, and dealing with flooding issues and lo and behold companies are allowing their maintenance folks to just blow leaves from the sidewalk into the street. Why can’t they scoop them up?
