Hippo bag collection cost & prices

How much does it cost for a Hippo bag collection in London and the rest of the UK? What do independent licensed waste contractors typically charge to collect a filled Hippo bag (megabag, midibag or skip bag)?  Why do prices vary much?


Hippo bag collection cost

The price of a Hippo bag collection undertaken by a licensed waste contractor ranges from £80-£250 (inc VAT) depending on the size of the bag, what you put in the bag (trade/DIY or bulky waste like furniture and appliances), the postcode, and when you need the bag collected.  Cheaper prices reflect smaller bags (like the midi hippo bag), lighter material, or that a collector was nearby at the time the customer required collection, meaning their cost of travel was lower than normal.

Please note the above prices are NOT official prices charged by Hippowaste. If you wish to use Hippowaste to carry out the collection, their online prices including VAT are set out below.

  • Hipposkip bag (4.5 yards) – £244.99
  • Hippo Megabag (1.5 yards) – £174.99
  • Hippo Midibag (1 yard) – £144.99
