HIPPO offers an effective service for use during the refurbishment or
fit-out stage of retail and office premises. Using a HIPPOBAG allows you to
segregate waste streams on site, making it easy for you to increase your recycling rates,
in turn helping you to achieve your diversion from landfill objectives.
HIPPOBAGs are a waste logistics solution without the space or time restrictions that you will encounter when either buying a skip or handling waste logistics yourself. With the efficiencies in time and space that are delivered by HIPPO, your workforce will be more productive and your business will save money.
HIPPO offer an affordable, flexible and instant waste solution that is both transportable and bespoke to your project. In addition, HIPPOBAGs allow you to carry out the work at a suitable time for you, rather than be restricted to when you are able to hire a skip. This way you can take greater control of your waste logistics operation and avoid unnecessary hassle during your retail or office fit out project.
HIPPO’s strong, non-bulky skip alternatives come in three different sizes, so you can match the size of the HIPPOBAG you purchase to the size of the project you are undertaking, meaning that you will never pay for more than you need and will save valuable space around your project.
What has HIPPO done?
Where working space is often at a premium, the HIPPOBAG provides an efficient and environmentally sound method of waste segregation and disposal. McLaren Construction recently used the HIPPOBAG to boost environmental performance whilst undertaking their first joint construction and fit-out of a John Lewis Partnership At Home store.
HIPPO recommended using the MIDIBAG as the most flexible solution; the one cubic yard bags fit comfortably on a standard pallet, allowing easy movement around site using a fork lift or pallet truck. Flat-packed bags were delivered in bulk ready to be placed near the source of the waste, reducing costly double-handling and minimising Health and Safety risks.
The bags were then consolidated for regular collection, preventing waste build up on site which could have restricted the project’s delivery programme. To support the on-site team, HIPPO delivered Toolbox Talks to promote best practice when it comes to positioning, filling and arranging collection of the bags.
Locating HIPPOBAGs at the point of waste generation allowed McLaren to keep working areas tidy. By labelling the bags for each major waste stream, McLaren were able to fully segregate their material. This proactive approach meant HIPPO have reported that 97% of the waste collected was diverted from landfill.
"Working in partnership with HIPPO on this project was the ideal solution. The MIDIBAGS allowed us to keep the site tidy, while segregating the waste before collection boosted our recycling rates resulting in 97% diversion from landfill."
