How many items will you collect?

You can request up to five bulky items per individual property and an unlimited number of small electrical items and textiles (clothes, belts, shoes, handbags) per collection.  We collect items in our distinctive purple wagon with Bulky Bob’s and Liverpool City Council logos on.

Note: You cannot book a collection for textiles only. Bulky Bob's will only collect bags of textiles alongside your booked collection. Just bag them up and give them to the driver.
