Weed Control Program about to start in Central Goldfields

Published on 26 February 2019


A Noxious Weed Control Program will be underway in the Central Goldfields Shire from next Monday 4 March.

Contractors will deliver a program of spraying across nature strips in Maryborough, Carisbrook, Talbot, Dunolly, Majorca, Timor and Bealiba.

The program will spray against the noxious weed Caltrop (Bindii) and is expected to be complete by Friday 15 March 2019.

Residents may see a vehicle with a spray tank, and contractors with a backpack hand-held spray unit and marker dye on the nature strip where spraying has taken place. The chemicals used are safe, and there is no cause for residents to be concerned.

The program is State Government funded – under the Roadside Weeds and Pests Program 2017-19, administered by the Department of Environment Land Water and Planning.

The program of spraying is being delivered as part of the Central Goldfields Shire Roadside Weed Control Plan.
