Council

Weed control

Marrickville Council currently uses glyphosate herbicide to manage environmental weeds, except in sensitive locations such as outside child care centres and in shopping areas where Council has for many years used steam-based treatments. See list of current locations below.

In response to community concern and recent health warnings, Council is now investigating alternative weed management treatments with a view to reducing our reliance on glyphosate if possible.

As part of reducing our reliance on glyphosate use, Council is encouraging everyone to register their street frontages outside their residence as 'No Spray' areas and commit to managing weeds on and in front of their properties.

In the meantime, Council will continue to use glyphosate in some areas. Staff using glyphosate will be required to wear personal protective equipment. They will also use an inert blue vegetable dye to mark where glyphosate has been recently sprayed, and signage when using glyphosate in public areas. Once the sprayed glyphosate solution has dried, contact with the sprayed area is considered to be safe for humans and animals.

Request that your property be placed on the 'no spray' register. Contact Council in writing, by phone, or by email:
