Hippo Bag Collection

Hippo Bag Collection

Reliable, Cheap, Fast Hippo Bag Collection Service…

  • Cheaper than Hippowaste
  • Can be completed within 24 hours

We collect many Hippobags every week which benefits our customers in many ways. Our Hippobag collection service will require 24 hours’ notice and we can collect the Hippo waste from anywhere on the property. Alternatively, we offer our own Skip bag service which is more cost-effective.  Our costs to collect Midibag, Mega bag or the Hipposkip are surprisingly lower than contacting Hippo Bags directly!

This is because we dispose of the rubbish at our in-house waste transfer station. Hippo Waste disposes of rubbish at external waste transfer sites making the cost increase for the customer.

What can’t you place in a Hippo Bag?

  • Electrical appliances
  • Paint
  • Big tree roots
  • Mattresses
  • Food waste

How does Hippo Waste collect the Hippo bag?

If you choose Hippowaste to remove your bag, they use Hippowaste trucks with a mechanical grab/arm to lift the bag up which has weight limits. The truck must be within a short distance to collect the bag normally within 4 meters. Waste King Skip bag service can collect within 20 meters and also remove prohibited items that Hippo Waste can not recycle.

Why would I receive a waste journey from Hippo Waste?

There are many reasons for a failure to collect a Hippobag. The bag could be placed too far away for the mechanical arm to collect or there can be prohibited items inside the Hippo bag. Hippo trucks are HGV meaning they are very large and may have restrictions down small narrow roads. Alternatively, we can collect Hippobag or supply our own Waste bags to your property and our trucks are smaller which allows us to get to most locations.

Where can I buy a Hippo Bag?

Hippo waste has an option to buy online through their website or you can purchase the bags from DIY retailers like Wicks or B&Q. Other internet companies like Amazon are another way to purchase a Hippos bag. There are other companies that supply the same size and strength bags like a Skip bag and we can collect the bag through a man and van rubbish collector.

How much does it cost to remove a Hippo Bag?

There are three sizes of Hippo bags, and each size is a different cost.

Midi Bag – collection fee £189.99 Inc VAT

Mega Bag – collection fee £189.99 Inc VAT

Hippo Bag – collection fee £299.99 Inc VAT

Collecting a Hippo Bag through our service is considerably cheaper.

What is the cost to have my Hippo bag collected by another supplier?

There are plenty of other options to have the Hippo bag collected. If the bag is not full of soil or rubble, we can collect the Hippo bag. Most customers save money on lighter materials like bulky furniture or general light commercial or domestic waste.

Midi Bag – collection fee £138 Inc VAT Saving £51.99p

Mega Bag – collection fee £148.80p Inc VAT Saving £41.19p

Hippo Bag – collection fee £228 Inc VAT Saving £71.99p

Why is collecting a Hippo Bag through another supplier like Waste King cheaper?

The vehicles we use to collect the Hippos Bag are smaller and more fuel efficient meaning it cost us less to collect. We also process the rubbish through our own waste transfer station and Hippo Waste will generally tip their bags at an external waste transfer station like our facility. This pushes the cost up for the customer. Alternatively, you can book online our bag service

What are the sizes for Hippo bags?

Hippo Waste only offers three sizes in total.

What sizes are the bags and are there any other sizes for bags rather than the usual three sizes Hippo Waste use?

The good news we supply 4 Skip bags that are very similar to the bags Hippo Waste supplies. For example, we supply:

Our 1.2 Cubic yard SMALL Skip bag – slightly bigger than Midi Bag Hippo Bag but much cheaper.

Bag Size: 90cm x 90cm x 110cm

Our 1.5 Cubic yard MEDIUM Skip bag – same size as the Hippo Waste Mega Bag but much more cost-effective.

Bag Size: 180cm x 90cm x 70cm

Our 3.6 Cubic yard LARGE Skip bag – Waste King is the only supplier in the UK to offer this size. The Mega Bag is 1.5 cubic yards, and the next size bag is the HippoBag which is 4.5 cubic yards, a huge jump in size.

Bag Size: 250cm x 130cm x 85cm

Our 4.5 Cubic yard HUGE skip bag – same size compared to the HippoBag although the cost is £71.66 Inc VAT less.

Bag Size: 210cm x 165cm x 100cm

How do man and van bag removal collect Hippo Bags?

It’s as straightforward as ordering our rubbish removal service online. We would collect via our insured and licensed team to remove the bag. The team will even sweep and tidy the area around the bag. Teams can remove extra waste located around the bag that might have struggled to fit inside.

You can book a bag on our online booking nationwide.

I originally called up to enquire about a skip. Spoke to a very knowledgeable lady about what I needed and decided on a man with a van service as this was cheaper. Two days later, a man turns up with a big van and clears up all the rubbish on my drive and garage. Professional, polite and highly recommeded.

Angela Williams

This is my first time using WK and I am so pleased that I choose them. I had a friendly conversation to arrange delivery. The skip was delivered on time and placed on my drive to also accommodate my car. Haven't filled it yet but will do very soon.

William Croot

Always quick, efficient and friendly. Had several collections from WK during the renovation of my house. Tightness of access was a problem for skips but not for WK in their van based vehicles. Would recommend without doubt.

Roger Kemp

Great company to do business with, have had three skips from them over the past year. All dropped off and collected on the correct date and very competitively priced. Highly recommended
