Current Work

Sportsgrounds - Spraying for Bindii, Winter grass and Broad-leafed Weeds

All sportsgrounds within Willoughby City Council will be sprayed according to the Pesticide Use Notification Plan from May 2019 to August 2019, weather permitting.

Product being used as required: Spearhead, Acelapryn, Tribute, Barricade and Penmag 

These chemicals are for selective control of bindii and broad-leafed weeds and do not accumulate in the environment, requiring very low application rates of the active ingredient compared to other common selective herbicides making it the product of choice for use in public spaces (eg. sportsfields and recreational parks).

For more information please contact: Council’s Recreation Assets Team Leader on 9777 1000.

Intended start date: May 2019

Estimated date of completion: August 2019 (weather permitting)
