WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO IN THE LAST 10 DAYS

ERADICATING JAPANESE KNOTWEED FROM PORTSMOUTH TO NORTH YORKSHIRE

JAPANESE KNOTWEED SOIL SCREENING

Scope: Japanese Knotweed Eradication, Soil Screening.
Location: Portsmouth
Client: Highwood Construction

Herpetosure have recently completed a Japanese Knotweed eradication project for Highwood Construction in Portsmouth.

The project, which was completed in 8 days, involved the excavation of Japanese knotweed rhizome contaminated soil. Once excavated the soil was screened through a specialised screener bucket and then carried via conveyor belt to a manned picking station.

The whole operation was specifically designed to reduce the quantity of contaminated Japanese knotweed material being carried to landfill.

This project saw over 1000 tonnes of contaminated spoil processed; if such volumes had been disposed of at landfill the eradication costs would be 4 x times the cost with the Landfill Remediation Tax Relief included.

As with all of our Japanese knotweed eradication programmes, the Portsmouth project was completely project managed by Simon York, he explains…

“If you have Japanese Knotweed on site that needs to be eradicated within 12 months, using Herpetosure’s soil screening technique and post project monitoring programme is guaranteed to save £000’s in landfill charges"

JAPANESE KNOTWEED ERADICATION AND INVASIVE WEED CONTROL

Scope: Japanese Knotweed Eradication and Giant Hogweed, Himalayan Balsam and Ragwort Control.
Location: A1 widening, Barton to Dishforth, North Yorkshire.
Client: Highways Agency Carillion/MorganEst .JV.

H.I.S was also commission to carryout extensive invasive weed control operations along the A1 widening scheme in North Yorkshire.

The project required a combination of supervised Japanese knotweed excavation, Himalayan Balsam control, ragwort control, and giant hogweed treatment.

Again, Simon York played an important role in both the design and delivery of the project.

This invasive weed programme will be carried out over the next 12 Months.
