Hippo Bag Alternative

Buy a Skip Bag from us or let us collect your Hippo Bag.

SKIPBAG™ offers an easy alternative to Hippo Waste and Hippo Bag. Thanks to our large mixed fleet of vehicles (over 120 owned by us directly) we can usually offer a named day collection and for certain bag types we can also pick up on the same day. Our skip bags usually work out a little cheaper when compared to Hippo Waste. Our Skip Bag and Hippo Bag collections are carbon neutral thanks to our two UK forests.

Trade and regular customers can benefit from our trade and loyalty scheme which offers additional discounts of up to 10%.

Why use SKIPBAG™ to collect your Hippo Bag?

SKIPBAG™ is part of Clearabee, the UK’s largest ‘man and van’ style clearance company. We operate an in-house fleet of over 120 vehicles with almost 300 fully employed staff completing over 200,000 jobs every year, making us a great alternative to collect your Hippo Bag.

Carbon neutral

We offset all of the carbon produced by our vehicles through two UK forests which we created. This has led to an additional 19,674 trees being planted since 2018 alone.

Free next day postage

We include free next day postage on our small, medium and large skip bags. This means the price you see is the price you get.

Flexible placement options

Like Hippo Bags we ask that heavy bags containing bricks, rubble, soil and construction waste are placed within 4m of the road which will allow us to grab the bag using a lorry when we have one available. Bags with bulky waste however can be placed a little further from the road as we will send one of our lower emission vehicles to collect the waste.

Same day & named day Hippo Bag removal

Our bags can be collected on a named day, which is a Monday to Friday of your choice. This means you do not usually need to leave the bag out and wait for collection over a period of several days. Bags filled with lighter household, business or garden waste will be collected using one of our vans and can therefore be removed the same day or the next day too

Loyalty Scheme

We offer a 10% credit to all eligible orders which does include removal of Hippo Bags which are booked online. Going forward you can continue to buy Hippo Bags and ask us to collect the bag when full or order one of our skip bags which are the same size but a distinctive orange rather than yellow
