Who are Bulky Bobs?

Bulky Bobs are an award-winning social enterprise who aim to re-use, recycle and refurbish at least 70% by tonnage of the items they collect.

Thousands of items of furniture picked up by the crews are made available to families on low income.

Donate them to charity

If your items are in good condition, why not give them to a local charity?

Drop them off at your local tip

If your items can’t be donated or re-used, you can take them to your local tip for free. 

Swap, sell or give them away

If you don’t have transport or time, there are still lots of ways to get rid of your unwanted bulky items using websites like eBay, gumtree or Freecycle:
