Skip bag - how does it work?

A skip bag is a canvas bag used like a small skip to get rid of waste. Suppliers include Hippobag (part of Hippowaste), Bag-it, Rhino bag and Skip Bag. You buy the bags online or from DIY stores and builders merchants. They mainly come in two sizes – 1.0 cubic yard and 1.5 cubic yards. Hippo Bag also offers a 4.5 cubic yard bag. Once you have filled the bag, you contact the supplier or another waste disposal company to arrange a collection. Collection is by a lorry using a crane attachment and normally takes around a week from when you call. For access issues the bag needs to be placed close to the road and clear of things like trees or overhead wires that might obstruct the operation of the crane. If you put a skip bag on a public highway or pavement, you need to arrange and pay extra for a skip permit from your local council. Skip bags like hippobags are best suited for getting rid of small amounts of heavy, loose waste like rubble and soil. Electrical appliances, batteries, mattresses and gas bottles are not allowed.
