Through serialized audits, meticulous inventory management, rigorous testing, and strategic remarketing strategies, we ensure that every piece of received equipment is managed with precision and care.

Security is our paramount concern, fortified by a comprehensive system of keycard access controls, high-resolution surveillance cameras, metal detection scanners, and a dedicated security staff, guaranteeing the utmost safety of our customers' materials.

Trusted by leading industrial companies, including numerous Fortune 500 entities, Colt Recycling is adept at processing a diverse range of materials containing precious metals, such as gold, silver, platinum, palladium, rhodium, iridium, and copper.
