    A brother of mine bought land that a builder had he was dumping contaiminated soil on the land that Japanese knotweed was in it . As far as I know I think the department of agriculture kilkenny Co Council came out over saw the proper disposal of the soil, it is awful stuff. The land sale didn't go ahead in the end.

    There is an app on google store, 'national bio diversity' where you can report it. If the knotweed is adj to a road you can report it to the NRA, the Dept of Transport or your local authority.

    I believe the NRA have given the tender to a crowd from Florence Court in Fermanagh to eradicate same.
    Its a nuisance.
