ly-tipping (the term for illegally
dumping rubbish or waste)
affects everyone because it is
unsightly, hazardous to health,
damaging to the environment and
wildlife, and can encourage vermin.
If it persists within a neighbourhood,
it can even bring down property prices

There has been a signiﬁcant focus on
educating people about ﬂy-tipping and
the risks associated with disposing of
waste through an unlicensed person
or business. Members of the public
have a duty of care to ensure that any

disposed of responsibly and legally.
Failure to do so can result in a steep

HIPPO can relax knowing their waste
will not be ﬂy-tipped - they will never be
exposed to the consequences of failing
to carry out their duty of care when it
comes to rubbish disposal.
At the heart of HIPPO's exceptional
waste collection service is a product
called the HIPPOBAG - a unique skip
bag service for home and garden waste
that can be collected at a time to suit
you, even if you are out.
Customers simply buy the bag online,
by phone or in store, ﬁll it in their own
time and then book HIPPO to collect it.
HIPPOBAGs come in different
dimensions that hold either one or 1.5
tonnes of waste. It is almost impossible to
exceed the weight limit - you are more
likely run out of room in the bag before
you reach the weight limit.
