The Boomerang Recycling project emanated from a germinal idea during a Global Action Plan training that Cork Environmental Forum ran in Farranree, where participants expressed that they would like to see some project develop in the Northside of the city that would have a recycling/ reuse focus and would provide employment opportunities. Following that a Seminar on Community Enterprise was held in Farraenferris in November 2012.
A steering group evolved with a number of partners and a lengthy period of examining possibilities ensued. One of the partners, SMILE Resource Exchange, informed the group of a mattress recycling project in Dublin and their belief that this model could be mirror imaged in Cork
