THE HIPPOSKIP When we decided to re-fit our kitchen one of our main concerns was how to dispose of the large amount of rubbish that was our old kitchen. We were changing the lay out to some extent and replacing wall and base units as well as worktops and a large sink. Also there would be vast...

Over the Easter weekend this year, we decided that it would be a great idea to build a nice raised bed down one side of our back garden. All well and good, but it involved moving the shed (and painting it blue, but that's another story...) into another corner of our small urban paradise. So, we...

ProVery convenient. Good and fast service.

ConsPrice for the mega bag was quite expensive.

Over the Easter break I decided to demolish a typically normal small shed at the end of my garden (and replace it with a bigger one but that's a different story). I had to solve the problem of removing the waste once I had sledge hammered it to pieces and the local tip near me will not accept...

I recently bought a hippo-bag, and found it was a great product, even though I didn’t use the ‘phone to collect’ service. Hippo Bag is an ‘end-to-end’ waste disposal service You get a big woven polypropylene bag, with webbing straps at your local DIY store for a nominal deposit, I think I paid...

ConsNot big enough for larger jobs

I have been undertaking a huge renovation job on my hundred year old home, and as its an ongoing process, I have been hiring skips on an ad hoc basis. Thinking that these were costing me a fortune I thought I might try the Hippobag and see if what my friend, a small independent builder, was...

I used a HIPPOBAG recently when I had my old bathroom ripped out and a new one put in. I had arranged everything with an independent fitter and hadn't even thought about how the old bathroom suite would be thrown away...i assumed the fitter would take it away, but apparently they can't use the...

I too had been searching the Internet for ideas on how to best get rid of my garden waste and was lucky enough to stumble across a previous review. I didn't really want to fill my car up with loads of dirt and grass, so I thought about hiring a skip but after the horror stories I had heard from...

We recently renovated our front garden and thought Hippo Bags provided an economic and convenient alternative to skip hire. That was until we tried to arrange collection. Like many people who live in a busy urban area there are a large number of cars parked in our street. We don't usually know...

I used a midi hippo bag to clear out some rubble that the previous occupant had hidden behind a wooden barrier. I placed the on the path leading to my terraced house on a busy street. I was worried that they would consider my low fence a barrier but that was not an issue. One point you have to...

I've had a hippo bag collected and felt that it warrants a good review. I bought my bag from Wickes and filled it with wood scraps and broken furniture. It has been collected this morning and I never even heard the lorry take it away. I booked my collection online on Thursday of last week and...

I have used the Hippo Bag and have to say that the service was superb. I bought the bag from B&Q and didn't finish filling the bag until two weeks later. I phoned to book in the collection and the call staff were really friendly and told me my bag would be collected in the next 5 working days...

“Hippobag”

ProNo hassle, great when no space for a skip

ConsSorry - can't think of any!

I bought the hippobag when my husband was fitting our new bathroom suite. We weren't sure how to dispose of the old suite as we don't have enough space for a skip. I came across the bag in B&Q for £13, they come in two sizes, midi and mega. I was amazed that the Megabag was big enough to take all...

Every cloud has a silver lining as they say!, When it was removed, the waste...

I've recently bought an old property which is very much in need of repair. The house has been unoccupied for months and the garden has been left full of junk. To start work on the house we needed to clear the garden to make space for access. There wasn't really enough waste to justify hiring a...
