Verge Cutting Program

Council provide a regular maintenance program to all of the verge areas across the City Of Salisbury. The verge program operates on a 6 week cycle for residential roads and 5 week cycle for collector roads from February to December each year dependant on weather conditions. Council's contractors whipper snip, mow to a height of approx. 80mm and blow off the driveways and footpaths as part of their works. Due to high risk of damage to vehicles the contractors will not work on the verge if a car is parked along side of the kerb. The street sweepers then remove the remaining green waste within 24 hrs.

Council encourages residents to cut their own verge to help enhance the streetscape presentation of the City if they wish. Alternatively residents can develop or landscape the verge area in accordance with Council's verge development guidelines.
