The Shire of Donnybrook-Balingup would like to advise the commencement of the annual Rural Road-side Vegetation Control.

Please contact the Shire’s Works & Services Department by phone on 97804209 or email (preferred option) if you do not want your verge to be sprayed, assuming responsibility for weed control on your verge.
