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 my friends and family I was very keen to avoid getting one.

When I read a previous review I just had to try one. I went to my local Homebase and sure enough there in front of me was a big yellow stand full of hippobags, I purchased the midi bag. I took it home and opened it up; it was larger than I had expected - plenty of room for all my rubbish.

I phoned Hippo to arrange the collection and the lady I spoke to was very polite and helpful, she took my credit card details (the whole lot only cost about £45). They confirmed that they would collect within 5 working days.

The bag was collected in 4 days which was great, and I was lucky enough to see the lorry come and pick it up. It was a very smart looking lorry and in keeping with everything else was very very yellow! Like the lady on the call centre the driver was also very polite.

Smiling to myself thinking about the trouble I would have had should I have chosen a skip instead - I can recommend this service to anyone and everyone!
