Ensuring that existing housing supply across the country is well-maintained
and meets a minimum standard of decency is fundamental to healthy and happy
communities. HIPPO is ideally placed to support refurbishment projects in this vital field.
We have a thorough grasp of the challenges in disposing of waste generated in the
process of creating and improving affordable housing and transforming neighbourhoods
– compounded by operating to strict deadlines and within tight budgets.
HIPPO has collected over 1.2 million bags from domestic properties since the company began. With this level of experience you can be sure of a safe and hassle free collection from your customer’s property. We can also help you to maintain your reputation as a good corporate citizen and fulfil your duty of care to the communities in which you work, by minimising the social and environmental impact of your operations.
HIPPO provides a nationwide network for rapid collection, meaning that you can use our services for your waste logistics needs wherever you are in the country.
We offer a choice of 3 bag sizes, meaning that whatever size project you’re undertaking, we have the perfect bag for you to complete your job. These bags come flat packed, so there is no need to wait for a skip or have to worry about regional skip prices and availability.
As well as reducing the direct costs of waste management, we can improve operational efficiencies and minimise disruption and distractions to your core activities. A typical sized homes project produces 2-5 cubic yards of waste from kitchen units, bathroom suites, and central heating systems. HIPPOBAGs, from the 1 cubic yard MIDIBAG to the 4.5 yard MIGHTYBAG, are ideal for the disposal of these waste streams. MEGABAGs were designed to hold a bathroom suite and a single MIGHTYBAG has the capacity to hold both a bathroom suite and a medium kitchen.
What was the problem?
Before partnering with HIPPO, all waste generated was deposited in a centrally located skip. This led to productivity issues due to double-handling of waste and a lack of monitoring
What has HIPPO done?
HIPPO recommended a three bag solution, meaning they only had to pay for the waste produced. Waste could now be stored where it was generated and moved across the site whenever it was necessary to do so
The Vale of Aylesbury Housing Trust have been using HIPPO’s innovative waste solution since 2012. By using HIPPOBAGs, they have managed to increase productivity and reduce costs, as well as improved environmental performance
"Using HIPPBAGs allows us to deal with our waste quickly and much more effectively. The bags are ideal for void clearances; too much waste is never a problem - our operatives just pop open another bag!"
