Do you need skip hire in Greater Manchester for that big job?
The bustling city of Manchester can be difficult enough to get around in rush hour, without the obstructions that a big metal skip can cause. So why not help out traffic in the area, stop blocking parking spaces and consider getting a HIPPOBAG instead of the traditional skip when you are next undertaking a project that is going to create a lot of rubbish.
The waste removal service offered by HIPPO is a great skip alternative and is reliable, flexible and cost effective. Where we offer three different sized bags, you can choose the one that’s going to best suit the waste you need to get rid of – whether that’s clearing out an old kitchen or bathroom, emptying out the loft or garage or even just disposing of a load of old garden waste.
The flexible alternative to hiring a skip
Our very first HIPPOBAG, the MIDIBAG remains our most popular product for rubbish removal after DIY and garden clearance projects. The bag can hold up to a tonne of waste.
Simply buy your MIDIBAG online or in-store, fill it up and we will collect it. The bag comes flat-packed and will open to 0.9m x 0.9m x 0.9m
The MIDIBAG can hold up to 3 toilets, or the combined contents of 9 wheelbarrows full of rubbish. It’s the same size of bag that you’d usually have a tonne of gravel or sand delivered in.
- 3 x toilets
- 9 x wheelbarrow waste
Our MEGABAG was specifically designed to hold an entire bathroom suite and can comfortably carry a tonne and a half of waste. It’s also perfect for rubbish removal following DIY work or garden clearance projects.
Arriving flat-packed, the MEGABAG will open out to 1.8m x 0.9m x 0.7m, meaning it’s ideal for a range of household, garden and general building waste removal tasks.
The MEGABAG is a large bag designed for rubbish removal following substantial DIY or home improvement projects. It can hold an entire bathroom suite, including a standard-sized bath tub.
- 13.5 x Wheelbarrow waste
- 1 x Bathroom suite
Our largest bag, the HIPPOSKIP can carry an entire kitchen or bathroom rip out, and is also ideal for clearing waste from garden clearance, DIY work and building projects.
Coming flat-packed, the HIPPOSKIP opens to 2.1m x 1.65m x 1m. Because of this large size, the bag may only be filled 1/4 full with heavy waste like soil and bricks.
Ideal for household, garden and general building/DIY waste, the HIPPOSKIP holds up to 1.5 tonnes.
The HIPPOSKIP can carry an entire, standard-sized kitchen rip out. This includes all of the cupboards, worktops and fittings. To give you an idea of the size, a smart car fits comfortably in a HIPPOSKIP.
- 40.5 x Wheelbarrow waste
- 24 x doors

All of these additional costs can be avoided with the use of a HIPPOBAG, with one fixed price for the bag and collection and no hidden extras.

Customer Reviews in Manchester
I would like to say, how impressed I was by the driver who collect my Hippobag, last week, my road is a country lane, but is used as a rat run, so he had to block the road to collect my bag from my driveway, he was completely unflappable, and professional, I would definitely use you again, although, I have to say, I could have done with the largest bag.
