Herbicide application notification

The City of Nedlands advises that, during the months of September and October 2018, hardscapes in road reserves throughout the City will be treated for the control of weeds. An application of herbicide will be applied to road kerbs, traffic islands, footpaths and shared-use paths for the eradication of annual and perennial weeds and grasses.

Due to the unpredictable nature of weather conditions, exact dates for application activities cannot be confirmed. Appropriate signage, as required by the Health (Pesticides) Regulations 2011, will be clearly displayed on the contractor’s vehicles during the application. Treatment will be undertaken by licensed contractors with operations monitored by City officers, in accordance with safety guidelines. 

The product being applied contains a non-selective herbicide (glyphosate) that shall be applied in accordance with the product label, as required by state and federal legislation. This treatment will not be carried out adjacent to properties where residents have registered to be included on the City’s non-spray register.
