Murray River Council is asking local residents to take a proactive approach to assist with the eradication of the Bindii weed from their own backyards this Easter.
While many garden beds throughout areas of Council are reaping the benefits of recent rainfall, other areas are dealing with a totally different type of foliage — WEEDS!
Join us for Operation Bindii
Operation Bindii 2020 competition has closed.
We thank everyone who participated in the competition and encourage residents to continue assisting us with removing Bindii from nature strips and adjoining vacant land.
While the NSW Government is campaigning for residents to Stay Home this Easter, now is the perfect time to get out in the garden whilst still practicing social distancing this Easter.
Any assistance community members can provide removing Caltrop from nature strips and adjoining vacant land will be greatly appreciated.
In an effort to keep ‘River Country’ clear of Caltrop, Murray River Council are asking residents to help remove the weeds as soon as possible. As an incentive, Council is offering all residents the chance to win one of up to 10 x $250 gift vouchers to spend in their local community by simply sending us a before and after image of the weed removal.

It’s very easy to remove the pesky weed from your property, just follow the lead of the bindii back to a central point in order to chip the weed at the root, but don’t forget to use gloves to protect fingers from nasty spikes.
Current growth may only present a minor nuisance right now, however as temperatures drop and rainfall increases, plant growth is rapid and a deep root system can develop in only a few short weeks.
