Pesticide & Herbicide Application Best Practices
The Town of Cochrane is required to follow provincial legislation and restrict the impact of weeds within municipal boundaries. The legislation allows the town some latitude in making decisions on how to deal with weeds.
In general, the Town of Cochrane prefers an integrated pest management strategy which encourages healthy growth of native plants and discourages growth or spread of noxious or prohibited noxious species. The goal is to sustain, preserve and enhance the esthetic beauty and heritage features of our natural and developed park environment. Find more information by viewing our Weeds in Cochrane page.
The Town of Cochrane is committed to helping residents and businesses reduce their environmental impact. The Cochrane Eco Centre accepts a wide range of materials for recycling.
