Boomerang Recycling is a new social enterprise recycling project based in Ballyvolane, Cork that deconstructs post-consumer mattresses in order to divert for re-use and/or recycling.









The main aim of the project is to encourage the diversion of bulky goods from landfill and dispose of them in an environmentally friendly manner. Boomerang provides local employment for a Project Manager and for a minimum of 6 TUS Scheme Workers.
Boomerang also provides for the up-skilling and training of its employees, while researching means to re-use and recycle fabrics.

The project is an 18-month start-up managed by Cork Environment Forum and supported by the EPA, Cork City and County Councils, SMILE Resource Exchange, Cork City Partnership, the Health Action Zone and community members.
