Our work

Circulate Furniture Recycling is Garnsychan Partnership Flagship Enterprise project and is the largest Torfaen re-use and recycling enterprise.

Circulate provides a collection service within Torfaen for all unwanted bulky household Items such as sofas, beds wardrobes and more. These are then cleaned, repaired and sold on at a low cost to the public from our showroom. Renovated white goods are also available.
