GMAT are specialists in the removal and disposal of Himalayan Balsam soils from construction developments.
Balsam soils can be contaminated with active seeds that can cause the plant to spread. These soils must be disposed of as controlled waste if they need to be removed from the site. Causing Himalayan Balsam to spread into the wild is an offence, leading to fines or prison sentences.
We have partnered with dedicated disposal sites that are permitted to accept the waste soils across the UK.
Not sure if you have Himalayan Balsam on your site? You should get it identified by an ecologist before any treatment plan is created.
We have put a guide together to help you identify the invasive plant before seeking further advice. The guide also gives a background to the weed, how it can spread, what legislation existing in the UK, and the best eradication methods.
