Invasive species pose threats to our economy, environment and humans, including health.

Invasive Plant Disposal

Invasive Plant Disposal

Please take care to dispose of invasive plants at the appropriate locations. We are regularly battling invasive outbreaks started by inappropriate or illegal dumping.

Locations for invasive plant disposal include:

Hartland Landfill

Municipal Drop off

  • Some Municipalities have yard waste drop-off that will take many invasive species. Some may have limitations (i.e. no seeds) and/or restrict certain species. (*Knotweed must not be disposed of at these centres.) Contact your Municipal Hall for more information or look on your Municipal website.

Regional EDRR Program

  • Free disposal of Knotweed is available as part of the regional EDRR program. This requires the CRISP Contractor or local government staff to be treating and disposing of the Knotweed. If you have a unique situation and need disposal assistance, please contact us.

Proper Disposal:

  • Put plants or cuttings onto tarps or into bags (to avoid spreading seeds or leaving behind parts of roots or stems that can re-infest)
  • Do not compost invasive plants at home
  • Only dispose of invasive plants at the locations above or by burning where and when appropriate.
