Herbicide Spraying

The Rangitīkei District Council carry out weed and pesticide control regularly on parks, reserves, roadways and gardens throughout the district. Spraying may also be done on specific sports grounds for the control of broadleaf weeds.

Spraying will only be undertaken by growsafe or registered chemical applicators.

Members of the public must adhere to the warning signs, which will be placed on roads and park entrances in the vicinity of the control operations. Spraying will occur between the hours of 6am to 6pm on normal work days and will be only undertaken when weather conditions are suitable.

If you do not wish to have your roadside included in the weed spraying programme you may phone the Rangitīkei District Council, before spraying commences, and register your details.
