Compliant removal and disposal of soils contaminated with Giant Hogweed from development sites.
The soil where Giant Hogweed is growing can contain the seeds, which cause the plant to spread. Any soil which needs to be removed from the site must be disposed of as controlled waste. Causing Giant Hogweed to spread in the wild is an offence under The Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 which can lead to fines and prison sentences.
Having partnered with permitted disposal sites across the UK we can compliant accept invasive soils.
Do you suspect Giant Hogweed is growing on your development site? We have developed a simple guide to help contractors identify if they have Giant Hogweed colonising their development.
If you believe the plant is Giant Hogweed you should contact an ecologist to confirm its presence. The guide also gives background information on the plant, how it can spread, and the best eradication methods.

If Giant Hogweed has been confirmed on-site, an eradication plan will need to be developed to ensure compliant removal.
As a licenced waste carrier with the Environment Agency, we are permitted to carry waste materials using four, six, and eight-wheel tipper wagons.
During removal, we will ensure the completion of waste transfer notes so that you comply with your duty of care.
