Roadside Weed Initiative Program

For the 12th consecutive year Indigo Shire Council is delivering the Roadside Weed Initiative program.  This program helps landholders prevent the spread of weeds on roadsides adjacent to their property. 

In 2013, 14 residents participated in the Roadside Weed Initiative, which resulted in targeted weed spraying of over 100km of roadsides.  The program is an opportunity for residents to take ownership of their roadside and look after it to the same standard as their property. Preference will be given to areas and weeds that have not already been treated, as well as to joint applications with adjacent neighbours and to applications that follow up on spraying undertaken last year.

Application forms can be obtained from Indigo Shire offices or from Indigo’s website.  Any queries regarding this program can be directed to Council’s Natural Resource Management Officer on 02 6028 1100. 

The 2014 Program is due to open earlier this year to allow for greater participation by residents.  Application are due to open in July 2014.

Please note that allocation of chemicals will be based on the type of training residents possess.  Residents with current chemical users certificates will be allocated a wider selection of chemicals.

Strict chemical use requirement apply as per the Department of Environment and Primary Industries' guidelines.
