Other ways of saving money on Hippobag collection
There’s a chance you might be able to save even more money than the Hippobag discounts offer. You could try selling or donating your reusable waste, using a man & van company to collect your waste or taking your waste to a tip. For more info on each of these, see below.
1. Don’t overfill your skip bag
Just like skips, if you overfill a Hippobag you could either face extra charges or be left with some of your waste while the allowed amount is taken away and disposed of. This is why it’s important not to ignore the ‘level load’ i.e. the top of a skip/skip bag. Click the following link to see what you can and can’t put in a Hippobag.
Leaving your Hippobag on your driveway or front garden will save you from having to pay a permit. Permits are needed when placing your bag on a public highway and the average cost is £68.
It’s worth noting that if you don’t have the luxury or a driveway or accessible front garden, a man & van removal company can collect your bag from anywhere on your property.
3. Sale & donation
If you’re trying to dispose of waste that someone else might be interested in, consider selling or donating your waste instead. It’ll save you paying to have your junk collected and instead, you might even make some money instead of losing money.
Obviously, if you have messy waste like bricks or old broken tiles, it’s highly unlikely anyone else will want to take it off your hands. However, if you have bulky waste like a bedside table, it’s worth trying to pass it on for reuse.
There are also lots of options if you’re just looking to donate to someone in need. You could take it to a charity shop or furniture reuse organisation or you could use an online site such as Freegle, Freecycle which promote free reuse. There’s also the option to use websites such as Nextdoor, Facebook Marketplace and eBay and just set the price to £0.
4. Household Waste Recycling Centres
If you have the time, means of transport and the muscles/energy, you could take a trip to your local HWRC (Household Waste Recycling Centre) and dispose of the waste yourself. For more info on HRWCs, how they work, prohibited waste and more, check out our ultimate guide.
5. Find your Cheapest Collector on LoveJunk
Last but definitely not least, why not use a licensed man & van collector to remove your Hippo bag? Or better still, just empty it and then leave you the empty bag to fill a second time. Man & van waste contractors can collect the rubbish from anywhere on the property (unlike the Hippowaste lorry which requires you to place the filled bag within easy reach of the road). If it’s filled with heavy, loose rubbish the team will unload the waste and carry it to the truck using a wheelbarrow or gorilla tubs. If it’s quite light bulky waste, they will just lift the whole bag in one go. So, you can leave and load the bag on your property wherever suits you. This is super handy as you don’t always want to lug waste into your driveway, front garden or road.
Using a man and van is often considerably cheaper than a crane lorry collection. And another benefit to man and van collection is they can often offer faster response times.
