    • Fill corners first with heavy items so the weight is distributed evenly.
    • Fill the bag to the top but don’t overfill it.
    • The MEGABAG is designed for bathroom rip-outs; put the bath in first and pack other waste in and around it
    • Please don’t use ‘greedy boards’ and overload bag
  • 8. Positioning the HIPPOBAG
    • Access to the road must be at least 4m
    • The HIPPOBAG cannot be positioned more than 4m from the kerb
    • Make sure the handles are left clear
    • Do not obstruct the HIPPOBAG with parked cars, cables or trees etc.
    • Nothing over 6’ high must be in between the road and the bag, or we may not be able to lift it
  • 9. Positioning the HIPPOBAG
    • DON’T:
    • Leave the HIPPOBAG on the road, pavement or verges without prior permission from the local council
    • Overfill the HIPPOBAG
    • Include any hazardous waste
    • Position the bag out of reach or up a block paved driveway
  • 10. The collection
    • Bags are collected by a 26 ton DAF lorry as standard, a 7.5 ton van is available for restricted access roads (surcharge applies)

  • 12. Plasterboard legislation
    • Small amounts of plasterboard can be placed in a clear bag on top of a HIPPOBAG so it can easily be separated and recycled later.
    • Large amounts of plasterboard can be put in a different HIPPOBAG away from other waste streams.
    • The EA clearly states:
      • “ This material must not be land-filled with
      • biodegradable waste. Producers of gypsum waste
      • should separate it for recovery and recycling”.
