Controlling Weeds & Privet


Privet is a weed that often dominates bushland areas in the Shire, particularly in moist and fertile environments. It is a declared Class 4 noxious weed which means that the growth  of the plant must be managed in a manner that reduces its numbers, spread and incidence and continuously inhibits its reproduction.

If you think you have privet and would like to get it identified, take a sample to a local nursery or to the Community Environment Centre on a Thursday.

For more information on how to best control Privet on your property, contact Council's Bush Regeneration Officer on +61 2 9843 0555.


Spring Weed Spraying

As part of our ongoing maintenance program, Council officers will be spraying sporting fields, reserves and parks for Bindii, clover and broadleaf weeds during Spring.

The spray used is Spearhead – a herbicide that  is considered safe to walk on once dry. Council officers will remain on site until this is the case.
