Sefton Council’s Bizarre Bulky Collection Service

Norwood Ward Lib Dem Councillor Marianne Welsh recently contacted Sefton Council to have her old garden furniture removed. On telephoning Sefton Plus she was asked how many items it was and said it was a set comprising of a table and four chairs.

Councillor Welsh was told that the maximum number of items that could be collected was three, so the table and two of the chairs could be taken but not the other two chairs. The cost would be £5. She then asked for the other chairs to be taken at the same time but was told this could not be done, and she would have to ring again to arrange another time for this further collection.

Councillor Welsh says:

“This is a most bizarre situation and to my mind a ridiculous way to operate a service to the public. I think it unacceptable to not take away a whole set of garden furniture in one go. So two different teams would have to go out on two separate days.

“I was prepared to pay another £5 to have the other two chairs taken on the same day but to be told that couldn’t be done and that I would have to ring again for a further slot on another day is crazy like something out of Monty Python.”
