Bounce Back Recycling (BBR) was established in 2017 in Galway to create a viable solution for problematic bulky goods. BBR is a recycling company whose aim is to divert as much mattresses & furniture away from landfill as possible. We provide a quality service for companies, councils & householders to recycle their unwanted waste rather than send it to landfill. We already work with a number of local authorities across the country, and many retail outlets to improve the recycling rates across the west of Ireland.
With the lack of mattress recycling alternatives in the west Ireland, BBR has established itself as a leader in the field. We reclaim and recycle steel from mattresses which is sold on to a local steel recycling company. Although the textiles and foam are returned to landfill, they are compressed so they do not create dangerous voids in landfill sites. We are currently exploring innovative ways of dealing with textiles and foams. We are currently working with a knowledge provider researching innovative ways of dealing textiles and foams.
Employment and Training Opportunities
At Bounce Back Recycling we use a social enterprise employment model. We provide employment opportunities and job training for people with high barriers to employment. Our target is to make our social enterprise financially self-sufficient through our services. Income is used to pay standard operating expenses associated with the business and pay wages to our employees.
