CARLUKE-based Complete Weed Control, which provides specialist ground maintenance and weed control services to the like of construction sites and highways, has secured two new contracts with local authorities in Inverclyde and the Scottish Borders.

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.

The two-year contract with Scottish Borders Council comes as a result of a successful re-tender and includes street weed control throughout the council area.
