The most invasive of these is Japenese Knotweed which can grow up to 10cm a day and is capable of exposing weaknesses in buildings,foundations,concrete and tarmac.Because of this you could be subject to third party litigation where damages may be sought for allowing Japenese Knotweed to spread onto other properties and Planning Permission can be refused without an eradication programme in place for the infestation.
For all these reasons any parts of this plant and all soil contaminated with the rhizome are classified as controlled waste and there are clear quidelines around its legal disposal.
