- Recycling (7)
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, householders and many retail outlets to improve the recycling rates across the country.
The Cork Arts Society, trading as the Lavit Gallery, was set up, in 1963 by a group wanting to promote the arts in Cork City. Currently, as a not for profit, we support artists through our annual exhibition programme. We showcase the work of Cork-based artists primarily and present work by leading Irish and International names. Through the ambitious programme of solo exhibitions and group shows, we promote both emerging and established artists, in addition to stimulating and challenging Cork audiences.
We are a registered charity. No. CHY 13297.
It is our mission to disrupt and prevent the cycle of homelessness by enabling and empowering individuals to become self-sufficient members of their communities.

Rediscover Furniture is a social enterprise that is located in the unique Rediscovery Centre in Ballymun. The Rediscover Furniture programme aims to bring new life to old furniture. It takes great pride that furniture which was destined for landfill has been rescued and given a new lease of life.
The programme is aligned to the sustainable ethos of the Rediscovery Centre and the team uses traditional methods and environmentally friendly products in all of their work. Set up in 2006, Rediscover Furniture offers furniture courses and a repairs and restoration service to the public.
All of the restoration and upcycling work is undertaken by programme manager Gerard Griffin and his trainees. The completed pieces by the Rediscover Furniture team are for sale in our Ecostore located on the first floor of the Rediscovery Centre. All profits from these sales are reinvested back into the social enterprise.
