Hazardous Waste


Premier are expert in the removal of hazardous materials, including asbestos, and invasive plants e.g. Japanese knotweed.

Used as a building material in industrial structures and sites until the mid-1980s, asbestos was found to cause various dangerous lung conditions. Now considered a serious health and safety hazard, current legislation requires that asbestos is removed and disposed of in the correct manner. However, in the past many structures were demolished without taking proper precautions and the materials disposed of in brownfield locations which, as a result, contain contaminated soils and materials.

This can affect construction projects so we have experts who can advise on what needs to be done at each stage to ensure the project is completed as quickly and safely as possible.

Japanese knotweed

An aggressive, persistent perennial, Japanese knotweed spreads rapidly forming an extensive network of rhizomes below ground making it difficult to eradicate. It can grow through concrete, tarmac, brick walls and foundations if a weakness already exists. Ultimately it causes a reduction in the value of land and property. Eradication requires experience and determination as it is very hard to remove by hand or with chemicals.


Japanese Knotweed is now classed as ‘controlled waste’ under the Environmental Protection Act 1990 and requires disposal at licensed landfill sites. As a licensed contractor, Premier ensures it is correctly disposed of.
