Lambeth Council goes glyphosate free

The council has taken the growing concerns about the health and environmental impacts of glyphosate seriously and is ending its use of glyphosate several months earlier than planned.

By August 2020 the council had already ended the use of glyphosate in Lambeth’s Parks, Green Spaces and on Lambeth Housing Estates. The council had previously committed to reduce the number of sprays on Lambeth streets from three to two in 2020. A scheduled spray took place in May this year, but the second spray scheduled for August will no longer take place.

From October 2021, year-round chemical-free manual weed control will be introduced with the new Waste, Recycling and Street Cleansing contract.
