Weed control programs

How Randwick City Council controls weeds

Our weed control programs aim to control noxious weed growth and spread throughout Randwick City through the following measures.

  • Identify noxious weeds which pose a threat to the community and environment.
  • Map the location and extent of noxious weeds within the Randwick Local Government Area.
  • Prioritise and target specific weed species by employing the most appropriate control measures which will least affect the environment, but satisfactorily control the specific weed infestation.
  • Ensure early detection of, and rapid action against new weed problems.
  • Enforce the provisions of the Noxious Weeds Act throughout the Local Government Area.
  • Educate the local community about the identification, effects and problems caused by noxious weeds and their obligations under the Noxious Weeds Act.
  • Encourage and participate a regional approach to weed control incorporating the principles of Total Catchment Management by all local authorities for legislation, funding and control techniques.
