Skip Permit in Cambridge

When hiring a skip in Cambridge, it’s important to consider where the skip will be placed during the time it’s hired. If it needs to be placed on on a public highway or road, a skip permit must be obtained from Cambridgeshire County Council on your behalf by a registered skip company.  

The maximum length of a permit for skip hire on public land in Cambridgeshire is 14 days and costs £66. Let HIPPO take the hard work out of skip hire and arrange this for you at the time of booking.

Cambridge Parking Suspensions

If you’re intending to place a skip in a controlled parking zone such as permit holder or pay and display parking bays, Cambridgeshire County Council may permit this but additional charges apply.

Specific parking bays can be suspended at a cost of £25 per space per day where a space is approximately 5 meters. This is your responsibility to arrange - for more information on parking restrictions suspensions in Cambridgeshire, click here.

Easy to order online the bag was delivered very quickly. The collection was prompt. I have used this service twice now and I am very
impressed, I will definitely use HIPPO again. The bags are great if you are limited on space and you can't fit a skip in.

I have used HIPPOBAGs to help me with household rubbish. Lovley concept..get a huge folded bag in the post put it some where
accessible fill it to the brim, call HIPPO and it's collected. No fuss at all. Great thing is you can keep it up to 6 months and it carries
a lot of weight. Great service.



Great service

Great service, got rid of my soil, rubble
& building materials.



Bought a HIPPOBAG from B&Q

Bought a HIPPOBAG from B&Q. It is very easy to fill. Put it on the front drive. Collection was easily arranged and paid for
online. The collection was a couple of days after booking and didn't need anybody to be present. So easy. This is the
second time I have had a HIPPOBAG and I would use them again.
