It looks like BounceRunner has died and is not processing the bounce

Are these heldmsg-listname-*.pck files or bounce-events-*.pck files. If
they are held messages, they should be removed with bin/discard or
through the moderator interface, and setting the list's
max_days_to_hold may help.

If they are bounce-events-*.pck files, most of them are probably stale
because of dying BounceRunners. Assuming you are not slicing queues,
i.e., you have only one qrunner per queue, there should never be more
than two of these, one with the PID of the current OutgoingRunner and
one with the PID of the current BounceRunner. All the others are dead
files left behind when a runner died or was killed.
