UKFMC - Destroying Plants, Parts of Plants and Seeds

Proper Disposal of Plants & Seeds after Research Completion

Learn about the importance of properly disposing of plant materials after research and how UKFMC can help with our specialist waste management services.

You must usually destroy plant material after you’ve completed the research your facility was licensed to do.

In some circumstances, you may be allowed to test the plant material and get it released from the terms of its licence.

Contact the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA) if you want to get plant material released from its licence instead of destroying it. Note that you’ll have to get the plant material tested and pay any costs associated with this.

At UK Facilities Management & Consultancy, we can advise on, and provide secure collection and destruction of Prohibited Plants, Plant Pests, Pathogens and Soil across the UK.
