About Hippo Bag Hire at Homebase Plymouth Marsh Mills

You can now order your HIPPOBAG collection from Homebase Plymouth Marsh Mills to conveniently get rid of household waste and debris. HIPPOBAGs are flat pack, heavy-duty bags that you can use to dispose of waste. They're made of 100% recyclable, strong and durable polypropylene so you can fill them with bulky, heavy waste without worry.

HIPPOBAGs come in a range of sizes and depths, making them a great alternative to a skip for all kinds of projects. And with none of the inconvenience of restricting parking outside your property, or on the street for your neighbours.

Using HIPPOBAGs are really easy, you simply expand the bags and fill them up with your waste. Not all waste is accepted by HIPPO, so it's good to check out what you can use them for online before you order. Once you've filled your bags, you'll book a HIPPOBAG collection, and someone will come and take them away from your home, easy as that.
