Colorado Industrial Recycling 2023 Annual Report


2023 was all about building capacity for the future. We made some significant changes to our process flow and site layout to improve our operations. This redesign will allow us to process more scrap vehicles and improve our efficiency in shipping out material. In addition to these changes, we also continue to invest in equipment. 2023 was year two of a three-year project to do a comprehensive update of our fleet of heavy mobile equipment. We finished the year with one of the more significant investments we’ve made in recent years, we hired a new Director of Operations.
