A look at our history


January 2005

Express Recycling Solutions, Inc was opened in Wisconsin Rapids. Express Recycling quickly expanded from buying used beverage cans to accepting most other forms of nonferrous metals.

Joe Kozicki, the founder of the business, soon developed a passion for the concept of recycling and the potential to creatively expand.


Matt Zacher joined the business.

Prior to his time with Express, Matt served in the military and graduated from UW-Milwaukee. Matt saw the potential for a future in recycling and decided to make a transition from a career in social work.

July 2006

As Matt assumed responsibility for operations in Wisconsin Rapids, Joe began to realize the need for a similar shop in Stevens Point. Express Recycling in Stevens Point opened its doors.


Express Recycling saw an opportunity to start recycling paper and cardboard for the community. They opened a third location in Grand Rapids located between Wisconsin Rapids and Stevens Point.


Tim Zacher joined the business.

Prior to Express Recycling, Tim graduated from UWSP and went on to work at Duke and Appalachian State Universities in North Carolina.

Tim Zacher joined the business in the fall of 2008, making a transition from education to recycling.
