COMPLETE Weed Control, the Carluke-based ground maintenance and weed control specialist business, has secured two new contracts with local authorities in Inverclyde and the Scottish Borders.

Complete Weed Control provides ground maintenance and weed control along highways, construction sites, parks and other public areas throughout the Central Belt and beyond.

The Inverclyde Council contract will run for one year with an extension at the Council’s discretion of one further year. It will include three treatments a year of a new urban herbicide in Inverclyde’s streets and footpaths.

Due to the nature of our work we will getting under way immediately, subject of course, to our strict compliance with the guidance on avoiding the spread of the Covid-19 virus.”
