About Bulky Bob’s

Bulky Bob’s is a charity and a social enterprise with a mission to End Furniture Poverty. Everything we collect that is suitable for reuse is given away for free to local low income families or sold at low prices from our Oldham shop, located in Unit A, Oldham Central Trading Park, Oldham, OL1 4EB.

All profits are reinvested into our charity to provide paid training positions and to cover the costs of giving away our crisis furniture packages.

Anything that we collect that is unsuitable for reuse is recycled where possible or disposed of safely.

Book and Pay

There are three ways to book and pay for your collection:
  • Call 0161 770 6644 and pay over the phone with a credit/debit card
  • Use a Freephone at a local library and pay with a credit/debit card or cash.
  • Visit Moorhey Street Depot, Oldham, OL4 1JF and pay with cash or cheque (if cash, please bring the correct change).
