Metrofuser Reaches Environmental Milestone
Roselle, NJ -- HP LaserJet printer parts provider Metrofuser has announced it has reclaimed over 240,000 pounds of used computer hardware through its recycling program since the company’s inception in 2004.
The program offers business consumers ways to discard used or unwanted HP Laser Printers in a convenient and environmentally responsible manner. Metrofuser’s recycling program operates nationally and seeks to reduce the environmental impact of obsolete IT products and minimize waste destined for landfills.
Plastics and metals recovered from laser printers recycled by Metrofuser are used in new Metrofuser products. The program utilizes 99% of the material collected, generating very little waste.
Metrofuser is on target to meet its national goal to recycle half a million pounds of computer hardware by the end of 2007. In 2005, Metrofuser recycled approximately 140 thousand pounds of hardware nationally - an increase of 800 percent over the previous year.
Metrofuser’s primary business mission is to remanufacture and distribute parts for use in the laser printer service industry. The company’s facility in Roselle, New Jersey processes, repairs, packages and distributes parts to be sold to printer service providers and resellers nationwide.
“Our industry relies on quality cost efficient alternatives to the OEM offerings (original equipment manufacturer) so our company’s remanufactured parts are in high demand.” said Will DeMuth, Vice President, “Metrofuser’s products are working behind the scenes in Fortune 500 companies and small business to keep America printing.”
The company will be expanding the program in 2007 by raising awareness and increasing the rate of electronics recycling among business consumers in the United States.
