Bulky Bob’s collection service suspended

Liverpool City Council has suspended its large items collections service Bulky Bob’s.

Due to reduced staffing levels the popular service, where large household items are collected from people’s homes for disposal or recycling, will be put on hold so that other services can be prioritised.

Anyone who has a Bulky Bob’s collection already booked is asked to keep the items on their premises and off the public highway until normal service resumes and new collections can be booked.

If this is not possible, residents can contact private waste contractors or house clearance services but should check that they are licenced to carry waste. Checks can be made online using the Environment Agency’s public register.

The Bulky Bob’s suspension comes in the wake of the temporary closure of all household Waste Recycling Centres across Merseyside.

The council’s focus will be on supporting colleagues in Liverpool Street Scene Limited (LSSL) to keep normal refuse collections running as well as other cleansing services that reinforce public health and safety.
