We are committed to gradually reducing glyphosate.
Some of the ways we are starting to do this are:
- Using alternative methods of weed control, e.g. a weed ripper machine and 2 deep clean teams city wide
- Reducing the amount of sprays to treat Japanese Knotweed from 2 sprays a year to 1
- We have stopped spraying ‘drip lines’ (grass underneath trees)
- We continue to trial alternatives and work with industry experts to reduce use wherever practicable
We have seen a consistent reduction in Glyphosate use over previous years.
