Our Vision is to educate the world to think past the dumpster. Recyclean, Inc., the Midwest’s leading deconstruction company, is your best source for professional, safe, on-time, and on-budget deconstruction services. Recyclean is not just a business, but a way of life – a movement to improve the environment by educating people to see the beauty in used building materials. Recyclean has created its own app & training program to help construction fields recycle more.
Mike Goffman was greatly inspired by his parents, who survived the Great Depression. After watching them live so resourcefully, Mike set off on a journey to make a positive impact on the world through recycling.
Mike often describes his fondest childhood memories as dumpster diving with his best friend, finding things to fix up and resell for a profit. Every garbage day, they’d follow an established routine of searching for hidden treasures. He and his best friend of 35 years are still at it today with Recyclean Inc. Mike’s passion for recycling evolved from a hobby into a vision: a vision to change the world.
Mike has been in the construction business for over 30 years and the demolition deconstruction industry for over 20 years. He has a deep love for re-purposing old building materials. In his own words, “You have to be a little crazy to do what we do. We don’t look at old buildings as waste, but as opportunities for the future!” His continued love of recycling has lead Mike to chase a bigger vision: “to educate the world about thinking past the dumpster!”
Mike and Recyclean Inc., continue to serve as pioneers in the deconstruction industry. Mike has even custom-built the world’s first Recyclean app, Dandelion!
Meet the Team
Our team is crazy about deconstruction! Nothing excites us more than having the opportunity to deconstruct a commercial or residential building and get the repurposed materials into the hands of people who can tell new stories with old pieces!
