weed blitz coming to monbulk - 26 may

Weed Blitz - Free Environmental Weed Tipping Day
Skips will be available at Monbulk Reserve, Moores Rd, Monbulk on Saturday 26 May.

Cr Samantha Dunn gets rid of some agapanthus,
ranked as Yarra Ranges 5th worse weed.
Still not listed as noxious and available
for sale in some nurseries!
The sorts of weeds you can bring:
Arum Lily
Asparagus Fern
Banana Passionfruit
English Holly
English Ivy
Japanese Honeysuckle
Mirror Bush
Red Cestrum
Sweet Pittosporum
Wandering Trad
Wild Tabacco Tree

We can't accept Noxious Weeds, due to legal limitations on transportation. You can find out more about noxious weeds on the DPI website.

There'll be weed information and advice available on the day, or you can visit the Shire of Yarra Ranges website

note: When removing weeds please be aware of the potential that native animals may be sheltering in them. Always check woody weeds for nests before removing and where possible replace a weed with an indigenous native plant. Nest boxes are easy to make, inexpensive to buy and a great way of providing homes for native animals  and there's 3 nest boxes to win on the day!

This event is being sponsored by the Urban Fringe Weed Management Initiative, a collaboration between Yarra Ranges Council, our environmental volunteers, the Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges Landcare Network, Parks Victoria, Melbourne Water and the Department of Sustainability and Environment.
