What are my legal responsibilities in relation to Japanese Knotweed on my property?

In the UK, landowners are generally responsible for controlling Japanese Knotweed on their property. While it’s not an offence to have Japanese Knotweed growing on your land, allowing it to spread from your property into neighbouring land could be an offence. Waste material from these plants is classified as ‘controlled waste’ and must be disposed of correctly.
