The City Council has appointed Greentown Environmental for the purpose of removing weeds from the road network.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions the contractor only commenced works on July 30th last. The contractor is using an innovative process / product called Foamstream. This involves the application of hot water, sugar and natural oils to the weeds and is an alternative to the use of ‘Glyphosate’ based products. In 2019, only 10-15% of the road network was treated.
This work is being supplemented by a programme of manual weed removal, which will be carried out by crews from the Waste Management Services’ Division.
The contractor’s schedule of works is being managed by the Public Domain Office and it is expected that these works will take place across the North Inner City throughout the second half of September.
