Council has a weed spraying program and endeavours to keep all verges and roadsides free of weeds.
As part of the ongoing maintenance works, Council will commence spraying, which will include footpaths, kerblines, public access ways, main open drains, rural roadside shoulders, drains and verges throughout the Shire commencing in May each year.
The chemicals that will be applied are Glyphosate (Round Up) and Simazine, which are of low toxicity and necessary to eradicate weeds. Spraying will be conducted under strict supervision and guidelines.
If you do not wish for chemicals to be used on your verge please inform Council and register your verge. We acknowledge that some residents do not wish to have areas adjacent to their property sprayed.
If you wish to have your property permanently exempted from the weed spraying and have not previously informed the Shire of York in writing please complete the Weed Eradication Exemption Form and return to the Shire of York, PO Box 22, York, WA, 6302 prior to the 30th April each year. Further details may be obtained by contacting the Manager Works & Projects, Kerry Blyde on (08) 9641 1219.
