Press release from: Metrofuser Printer Parts & Trainiing

Metrofuser (metrofuser.com) is spending earth week celebrating its reclamation of over 1.3 million pounds of used laser printer hardware through its recycling program since the company’s inception in 2003. In April 2011, Metrofuser will have reclaimed over 1.3 million pounds of technology and re-manufactured over 200,000 mechanical and electrical devices, returning them back into productive office use, many having 6-7 generation of life use.

Metrofuser’s Whole Business Model is Based on Recycling and Reuse

Metrofuser reclaims, remanufactures then resells components from office imaging machines such as laser printers and copiers. The business model is designed around acquiring assets which are otherwise destined for landfills and reintroducing the recoverable, repairable parts back into the technology ecosystem. In some cases, individual mechanical or electrical components are acquired while in others, the parts are removed from decommissioned printers. Metrofuser carefully removes, disassembles, cleans and ultimately remanufactures each component. Many of the parts can be reintroduced back into the office ecosystem up to a half-dozen times. The residual effect of these processes significantly diverts tons of electronic office equipment from our landfills.

Highlights from 2010

* Last Year, Metrofuser remanufactured 50,000 mechanical and electronic parts, diverting near 350,000 pounds of technology from ending up in landfills.
* In 2010, Metrofuser recycled over 96,000 pounds of cardboard and paper. The new e-invoicing program uses technology to reduce paper waste, while a companywide paper and cardboard recovery and recycling initiative has ensured that no recyclable paper products are thrown away.
* Metrofuser also recycled over 12,000 pounds of aluminum metal last year and is seeking to make sure that every unusable piece of equipment that cannot be a part of the remanufacturing process is reused and repurposed outside of the Metrofuser offices.
* Metrofuser’s Green Packaging Program boasts a 5-10 times lifecycle. Metrofuser encourages customers to return cores using the original packaging and is often able to reuse molds several times before they are compressed to 10% of their mass footprint with full support of a nationwide return & recycle program from the packaging vendor.

Urban Economic Enterprise

Metrofuser’s technology center is headquartered within Roselle, New Jersey and its West Coast Distribution Center is in Santa Ana, California. Both offices are in designated Urban Enterprise Zones. Through commerce, the company, its vendors and customers make a direct impact into some of the fastest recovering communities in the country.

“We are elated that we not only met our goal set in ’06 ,” said Will DeMuth, Co-President, “but we have far exceeded it, contributing to a cleaner environment, establishing ourselves as an environmentally responsible corporate citizen, and continuing to raise the bar to increase responsibility industry-wide.“
