Sunflower Recycling was established to create employment in Dublin’s inner city in 1995. The project employs 32 long-term unemployed via Community Employment and 6 through the Full Time Jobs Initiative.The project has achieved much more in a relatively short period. Sunflower was successful in obtaining EU funding both INTEGRA and YOUTHSTART in its early years, and was chosen as the representative project from Ireland for the conference in Barcelona. The project has a long reaching reputation for the work it does. The project has also gained recognition for recycling as an option for future job creation.

Sunflower works closely with the City council and has been involved as a partner in a Life programme with three local authorities. Sunflower was a partner in Project HeatSun a LIFE initiative brought together local authorities, private enterprise, community groups and Fás. Partners included Dublin City Council, Dun Loaire/Rathdown Council, Fingal County Council, Fingal Recycling and Micropro. Created in conjunction with Dublin City Council, Busy Bees is a Furniture removal and recycling project for Dublin.
