Play in Bottom Bracket axle....

I have a square taper bottom bracket, not sure type, probably cartridge type, with an E-type derailleur on it too.

The axle appears to have play within the bottom bracket.

Same happened a couple years ago, the derailleur was loose too, had LBS tighten it up and all was fine and solid.

This time the derailleur is not loose, suggesting to me that the bottom bracket is still solid in the frame, but the axle has play in it, 3-4mm. Both cranks wobble together.

What should I plan to do about it?

Thanks.
