Want a quick, hassle free and cost effective way to get rid of plasterboard?
If you have plasterboard to dispose of, a HIPPOBAG is the perfect solution; we’ll take any clean uncontaminated plasterboard, in fact if you have lots to get rid of in one go we’ll even give you discounts.
If you have a small amount of plasterboard, then we’d recommend a single MIDIBAG. The MIDIBAG is a 1 cubic yard bag that’ll hold up to a tonne of waste. This is one of the easiest ways to get rid of plasterboard; just fill the bag as you would a skip, and whenever you’re ready simply book the collection online, or over the phone with our dedicated and helpful customer services team. HIPPO will aim to collect within 5 workings days anywhere on the UK mainland, and you don’t even need to be present when we do.
As we recycle 100% of the waste, it’s also an environmentally friendly and sustainable option. However it must only contain uncontaminated plasterboard and gypsum products. So make sure you check the table below for what we can and can’t accept.
If you have 10 bags or more then HIPPO's™ new nationwide plasterboard recycling and collection service will collect your plasterboard from site at a fixed price based on the site location. This can be as little as £30 a bag! It’s simple, there are no hidden tonnage surcharges and you’re not tied to any brand or manufacturer take-back scheme. For more information please visit our corporate website.
Plasterboard disposal – what does the legislation say?
In 2009, the Environmental Agency passed legislation that plasterboard must not be land-filled and that it should be separated for recovery and recycling as it is damaging to the environment.
Our service allows you to easily manage plasterboard waste, safe in the knowledge that 100% of the recovered plasterboard will be recycled whilst complying with Environment Agency regulations.
To register your site for collections, call us on 0845 850 0 850
or email email@example.com and we’ll contact you to discuss your project in more detail.
Bags containing plasterboard mixed with other waste cannot be collected. If you join our HIPPOPRO scheme then you'll save a further 5% off the collection cost.
What do our customers say about Hippobags?
I am a complete convert to Hippo bags - I will always use a Hippo bag in preference to a skip. A great business idea, a great product, a good price and brilliant service.
