Disposing of Japanese knotweed at a licenced landfill is the simplest way to ensure that you are staying within the law. The following information should help you through this process.

When transferring Japanese knotweed waste, you should always:

  • Check with the landfill site in advance to make sure it has a permit to accept material containing invasive plants.
  • Tell the landfill site that you are transferring Japanese knotweed. They may require time to prepare.
  • Cover or enclose the knotweed waste in the vehicle used to transport it so none can escape.
