Notice of herbicide application

The City of Nedlands advises that during the month of November 2016, the hardscapes in road reserves throughout the City will be treated for the control of weeds. An application of weed control will be applied to road kerbs, traffic islands, footpaths, and shared use paths for the proposed eradication of annual and perennial weeds and grasses.

Due to the unpredictable nature of weather conditions, exact dates for spraying 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 the operations monitored by City officers in accordance with safety guidelines.

The product is a weed specific herbicide (Glyphosate) and will be applied in accordance with the product label, as is required by state and federal laws. This treatment will not apply to residents who are on the City's non-spray register.
