Facilities and environmental services firm Assist Group has secured a contract to carry out highway weed control services on behalf of Knowsley Council in Merseyside.
The two-year contract, which began on March, includes a possible one-year extension.
The deal provides the borough with "an effective weed control programme to eradicate all grass and weed growth to kerbs and channels, footways, alleyways, traffic islands and splitter islands, subways and car parks and recreation areas".
