Japanese Knotweed Ltd recently tendered for this knotweed removal project near Manchester. We investigated the client’s suggestion that we excavate the substantial knotweed bund and move the spoil 250 yards towards the main entrance, for double handling onto tipper trucks.
The cost of doing this was prohibitive, so we had to find an alternative, cost-effective method which would help our client keep their costs down. Our solution was to build a haul road to the knotweed bund, with a turning area, so that the diggers will be able to load the trucks directly. This alternative method brought the costs down, and the risk of spreading knotweed across the site was removed.
This project required our dig and dump method, which provides an instant, hassle-free and impressive rectification method. The Japanese knotweed was fully excavated to remove all knotweed material. The excavation process was monitored by our site supervisors who not only ensure that all the knotweed is removed, but that only soils contaminated with knotweed are removed. This ensures we only excavate what needs to be excavated. All knotweed material and knotweed contaminated arising from these works was removed from site as controlled waste. This required removal via registered waste carriers to a landfill site fully licensed to receive and dispose of Japanese knotweed. We provided a full waste tracking record on completion of the works.
