A positive change the pandemic has highlighted

So much has changed to the way in which we work due to the pandemic, causing us to pause and assess how we conduct our operation.  We have all adapted to new business models to protect our customers and those who with work us, impacting many areas of our daily life.  Now, as pandemic restrictions are eased across the UK, businesses will go through a transition to determine the new working practices which are most suitable and effective for their operation.  Although some of the pandemic measures were restrictive to our work, there were some elements which improved our business performances, and it is these aspects we will adopt into our new normal working practices.

Two of the major changes business have needed to navigate were around social distancing and managing a reliable supply chain.  This has led many businesses towards HIPPO as a provider of their waste management services, due to the unique model we can offer.  Our HIPPOBAGs can be stored on site or with a field operative, ready to be used when the waste is generated.  During the pandemic this reduced contact points with third parties either delivering skips or moving the waste by hand, or a field team carrying waste back to a central site causing further cross over of operatives.

The HIPPO proposition also offers a reliable supply chain, unlike other areas of the waste industry where there has been high demand for skips leading to longer lead times and higher prices, the HIPPOBAG collection service remains accessible and efficient.  We maintain a large stock holding in the UK of HIPPOBAGs which are ready to be delivered to warehouses or operatives with short notice, giving confidence that there is a reliable solution readily available.  We also carefully manage our fleet of customised vehicles to optimise routing to provide customers with a reliable service, whilst reducing the environmental impact of each collection. 

Aside from the benefits in the current climate, using HIPPOBAGs to deal with your irregular waste streams and ad hoc waste events will provide a number of other benefits too. Whilst regular bins are simply too small, large skips can take up too much space, take too long to fill and can be costly, HIPPOBAGs can provide the balance you need. Our service need not be fixed such as a regular scheduled waste collection, you can also use us for unexpected waste events whenever you need us. And instead of you needing to have multiple contracts you can benefit from one simple solution with standardised pricing and a standardised service nationwide.

Alternatively where access to waste is restricted, or when you want us to clear the waste for you, our Man and Van service (known as ‘Here to Clear’) is the perfect solution. Our branded Transit Tipper vans are double manned with our professional HIPPO employees and can hold up to 14 yards or 1 tonne of waste.

This solution can often be ideal for reactive waste requirements too, our Here to Clear Reactive provides rapid removal of unplanned waste – such as fly-tipping, emergency repair or site clearance. This form of waste can cause a number of issues, but with one nationwide solution and standardised service you can rest assured knowing that the waste will be swiftly and professionally removed.

We work with organisations of every size so rest assured that whatever your requirement we can offer a fantastic solution to meet your business needs.
