JAPANESE KNOTWEED REMOVAL
Japanese Knotweed Sifting and Screening Services
Our Japanese Knotweed sifting and screening service is a great way of ensuring that all fragments and traces of the invasive plant is removed from the soil, for effective removal. Excavating soil contaminated with Japanese Knotweed for ‘off-site’ burial can be very costly as it is classified as controlled waste in the UK. In some cases, Japanese Knotweed sifting can actually reduce the volume of soil requiring off-site disposal by up to 75%, which can drastically help to minimise project costs. The less contaminated soil you have, the lower the costs of the off-site burial will be. For this reason, we provide a specialist Japanese Knotweed sifting and screening service, which involves all fragments of the root and rhizomes are removed from the soil, resulting in less waste. Unlike all Knotweed treatment methods, soil sifting screens provide a thorough and effective result.
Our team carry out our Japanese Knotweed sifting and screening service by using plant machinery, a thin layer of topsoil is scraped back and then sifted or screened by our team of Japanese Knotweed Surveyors. Japanese Knotweed sifting and screening only takes a day or two, depending on the size of the site, and once the entire site has been screened, it is ready for immediate development. For very large sites, specialist plant machinery can be used which can screen up to 40 tons of contaminated soil per hour, which is ideal when carrying out Japanese knotweed sifting on bigger scales. When carrying out on-site burial, our specialist’s surveyors will ensure that the area is mapped and recorded appropriately to ensure that there is no risk of the soil causing future issues further down the line.
