How to Prepare for the Service

Proper preparation is key to ensuring a smooth and efficient rubbish removal process. Here are some steps you can take to prepare for our Man and Van service:

Organising Your Items

Before our team arrives, it's helpful to sort and organise your items. This doesn't just make our job easier, but it also helps you keep track of what you're disposing of.

Categorise Your Items: Start by categorising your items into groups such as recyclables, general waste, and hazardous materials. This will help us dispose of your waste responsibly and efficiently.

Separate Large Items: If you have bulky items like furniture or appliances, it's helpful to separate them from smaller items. This allows us to plan the loading of our van more effectively.

Ensuring Access

Clear access to your items is crucial for a smooth rubbish removal process. Here's how you can ensure this:

Clear Pathways: Make sure there's a clear path from your items to our van. This might involve moving other objects or even parking your car elsewhere.

Remove Obstacles: If there are any obstacles that could hinder our team's movement, such as low-hanging branches or Buddy’s favourite squeaky dog toy, it's best to remove them beforehand.

Inform Us of Any Access Issues: If there are any potential access issues, like narrow entrances or steep driveways, let us know in advance. This allows us to plan accordingly and bring any necessary equipment.

By taking the time to organise your items and ensure clear access, you'll be setting the stage for successfully having your waste collected. Now, let's move on to what you can expect on the day of collection.

What to Expect on the Day of Collection

On the day of collection, you can expect our professional and friendly team to arrive at your property ready to clear your waste. Here's a brief rundown of what will happen:

Arrival of the Team: Our team will arrive at your property within the agreed time slot. They'll come equipped with all the necessary tools and equipment to handle your waste.

Waste Assessment: Before we start loading your waste onto our van, we'll do a quick assessment. This helps us plan the loading process and ensures we handle your items safely and efficiently.

Waste Removal: Once we've assessed the situation, we'll start loading your waste onto our van. We handle all the heavy lifting, so you don't have to lift a finger.

Clean-up: After all your waste has been loaded onto our van, we'll do a quick sweep of the area to ensure we leave your property clean and tidy.

Departure: Once we're done, we'll head off to dispose of your waste responsibly at a waste transfer station. Our partners are committed to diverting waste from landfill and recycling as much as possible, and ensuring that any non-recyclable waste is disposed of in the most environmentally friendly way.

Remember, our team is there to make the process as easy and stress-free for you as possible. If you have any questions or concerns on the day, don't hesitate to ask. We're there to help!

The Importance of Choosing a Licensed and Professional Service

In the world of waste removal, not all services are created equal. It's crucial to choose a licensed and professional service like HIPPO for your rubbish removal needs. Here's why:

Responsible Waste Disposal: A licensed service ensures that your waste is disposed of responsibly. At HIPPO, we're committed to recycling as much waste as possible and ensuring that non-recyclable waste is disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner.

Compliance with Regulations: Licensed waste carriers are required to comply with all relevant waste disposal regulations. This means you can rest assured that your waste is being handled in accordance with the law.

Avoiding Fly-Tipping: Unfortunately, unlicensed waste carriers often resort to fly-tipping, which is the illegal dumping of waste. This not only harms the environment but could also result in fines for you if your waste is traced back to you. By choosing a licensed service like HIPPO, you're doing your part to combat fly-tipping.

Professional and Efficient Service: At HIPPO we pride ourselves on offering a professional and efficient service. Our team is trained to handle all types of waste and we always strive to provide the best customer service.
