What we can take & Where it goes

We can take any non-hazardous junk and bulky waste – including furniture, large and small appliances, bric-a-brac, garden refuse, general rubbish, rubble, home improvement, DIY and builder’s waste – from anywhere inside or outside your property. All waste is either passed on for reuse or disposed of at a licensed recycling facility.  On average 93% avoids landfill.

Hazardous/ special items we cannot take

For health & safety and regulatory reasons, our crews cannot remove the following.

  • Asbestos, Biological or Medical waste
  • ‘Box’ TVs / monitors (ie. CRTs) – but flat screen TVs/monitors are OK!
  • Gas bottles or Fire extinguishers, oil, petrol or diesel, toxic substances, noxious chemicals & solvents, Car batteries
  • Paint or paint cans (unless empty)
  • Raw meat or raw fish (unless packaged)
  • Domestic refuse (unless bagged)
  • Tyres (Car, Truck, Lorry, Tractor)
  • Pianos or any exceptionally heavy items that cannot be lifted safely by two people
  • Commercial fridges, chiller cabinets, freezers or a/c units – however we do take domestic fridges but charge a little extra to cover additional costs incurred in their disposal

Important Conditions for “Hippo Bag Collections Rates”

Customer Testimonials

Hippo Bag Guidance

A Hippo bag is a yellow canvas bag used like a small skip. You can buy the bags online from Hippowaste or from DIY stores and builders merchants. They come in three sizes – the smallest is the 1.0 cubic yard bag (the ‘Midibag‘), the middle size is the 1.5 cubic yards bag (the ‘Megabag’) and the largest bag is the 4.5 cubic yards bag (the ‘Hipposkip‘). 

Hippo Bag Collection by Hippowaste

Collection of a Hippobag by Hippowaste is by one of their lorries using a crane attachment. 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 the bag on a public highway or pavement, you need to arrange for a skip permit from your local council.
