About Us

Our Story

   

Colorado Industrial Recycling was founded in 1998 with  just one roll off truck and a handful of roll off containers.  Today we are proud to say that we provide recycling services for over 700 companies in Colorado Springs.  Our owners, Dave and Mike Koscove, are the third generation in their family to work in the metal recycling industry in the Pikes Peak area.  Their love for the community is the driving force behind  our success.


Through this family legacy, Dave and Mike bring a uniquely long-term perspective to our business. They understand that longevity in business requires a fundamental level of trust between the enterprise and its stakeholders. While difficult to build, this trust is easy to lose. 


For this reason, Colorado Industrial Recycling recognizes that there are no shortcuts to the kind of relationships we hope to build. Instead, we offer transparency in all aspects of our operations and commit to best-in-class customer service, occupational health and safety, and environmental accountability.    



Our Environmental Commitment

 

In October 2012 Colorado Industrial Recycling received Gold Level Membership in the Environmental Leadership Program (ELP). The ELP is a program administered by the state of Colorado to recognize companies and organizations that go beyond state and federal regulatory compliance. Colorado Industrial Recycling is one of only eleven companies in Colorado Springs recognized by the state of Colorado as members of the Environmental Leadership Program. 


We were the first metal recycler in the state to achieve gold status, and we are still the ONLY metal recycling facility in Colorado Springs to have achieved the distinction.  With the growing issues of proper disposal and ethical recycling habits, our customers can always rely on our commitment to eco-conscious practices and environmentally sound recycling efforts.
