Kerb & Footpath Weed Spraying Program

On display until 23 November 2018, 07:00 AM

Kerb & Footpath Weed Spraying Program

Beginning Monday, 22 October 2018 kerbs and footpaths in the Town of Cambridge will be sprayed with herbicide (Glyphosate- Roundup). All visible weeds will be treated with this low toxic herbicide that leaves no soil residual activity.

If you don’t want the kerb and footpath outside your property sprayed and have not already sent in an exemption form, please contact the Town on 9347 6000.

You may download an exemption form here.FORM-Herbicide-Spraying-Exemption.pdf(PDF, 83KB)

Or complete an online application Online Exemption Application

Your name and address will be recorded and a form sent to you to fill in that will ensure your exemption. All property owners/occupiers who sign the form will need to keep the kerb and footpath adjacent to their property weed free to the same standard that will be achieved by chemical control. The Town’s lanes and drainage sumps will also be sprayed for weed control, including Caltrop, using the above same chemical plus Simazine (a pre-emergent herbicide).

All works are carried out in accordance with Health Department regulations.
