I was looking at these in B&Q earlier and they do seem a pretty good idea. Don't forget that collection is £49.50 for the smaller bag (1 tonne) or £69.50 for this larger one though.

its almost £70 to pick it up! we got a midi skip for £80 which could be filled up to 4 tonnes in weight, so would fit more in that this. I suppose it depends where you live.

I know, but cheaper and handier than a massive skip. Like the idea that they recycle most of the waste too.

just fill your boot and drive to the tip

Skips aren't suitable for everyone.

You'll need an awful big boot to fit a bath in lol

I could pay the council £5 and they will collect and take the bath away for me

It's a very good and cheap alternative if you don't want, or can't use, a skip where you live. Pretty silly voting cold for no good reason when someone could make use of this.

The benefit of these is you can fill it up over a period of time rather than with a skip which is mormally limited to a week or so.

To be fair, while the collection fee may keep this deal from being hot, the actual bag itself is worth the money if you're having a clear out / trimming hedges. It wont split, and you can fill it with as much as will fit in your car, then take the contents to the tip, keeping the bag for the next run.

Hot from me.

Cant see why anyone cannot use a skip, voted cold, rubbish deal

Agree with BorisTheSpider, getting a bag big enough for all the tree trimmings is more than this, shove it in the boot and fill it there, unload at the tip and your car's still clean!

Makes a great boot liner for whenever you need to carry something that might make a mess. I've used a similar one for years.

That's pretty much the only benefit.

Skip companies will recycle most things that can be recycled as it saves on disposal costs so there's no real green credentials of a bag over a skip.

Most people who would use a bag could also use a skip - I accept that there are some instances where it may be beneficial to have a bad over a skip, but there can't be many. For example, having a bag whilst living in a top-floor flat is a great idea until you come to lug 1tonne down the stairs......

These things are a marketing gimick. There's ******-all point to them over a skip in general and it's just that they're more accessible to the high-street shopper than a skip. As for paying £70 to get rid of an old bath, it would be cheaper to hire a van for a couple of hours and drive to the local tip.

How is this a "filler item" when its over a fiver?!

I'm sick of people using this term. A filler item is something of very little value that can be used to make up a value to attain free delivered. In this case, the "filler item" is more expensive than the delivery charge itself.

Ice cold.

VERY Expensive!

I pay £25 for a local company to deliver a 1 tonne bag and then take it away once full (Sackers or G&L Wate in Sufolk). If you just need the bag a builders merchant will sell you one cheaply.
