MEGABAG £105.00 250kg
HIPPOSKIP £160.00 500kg


Important Conditions for “Hippo Bag Collections Rates”

  1. Level loads – our “Hippobag collection rates are for level loads only.  If you overfill the bag or would like us to remove additional waste and the same time our normal loose waste rates will apply (you can see these if you book online)
  2. Weight limits – our Hippobag rates are subject to weight restrictions (see table above). If you do not fill a bag more than a ¼ full with heavy, dense materials like bricks, soil and rubble, the weight of the bag should be comfortably within our weight allowances.
  3. Phone bookings only – these rates are only available if you book by phone.  Go to Book Online to check rates and book a standard collection.

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.
