proactively collects and even purchases defective and end-of-life office
machines and their components. Metrofuser feeds these assets into a
comprehensive remanufacturing program, where they are rebuilt to a
“like-new” state. Because we
understand that for our business to thrive, the world in which we
operate must thrive.
Metrofuser’s Whole Business Model is Based on Recycling and Reuse
Metrofuser reclaims, remanufactures then resells end of life
components from office imaging machines such as laser printers and
business model is designed around acquiring these assets which are
otherwise destined for landfills and stripping components such as
electronic boards, mechanical and electrical components from them. Once
these components are removed, Metrofuser carefully remanufactures them
to reintroduce the newly remanufactured part into the office IT
ecosystem. Most of the components of these machines can be reused and
reintroduced back into the ecosystem up to a half-dozen times. The
residual effect of that alone significantly reduces the amount of
electronic office equipment waste filling our landfills daily.
Recycling through Remanufacturing
Metrofuser feeds these assets into a comprehensive remanufacturing
program, where they are rebuilt to a “like-new” state. Quite often,
Metrofuser’s engineers resolve many of the original factory flaws, thus
increasing the life of the component and enabling Metrofuser to provide
a “better-than-OEM” component and longer-than-OEM warranty. Finally,
these parts are sold on “Exchange” – Metrofuser’s customers are given a
discounted price on the remanufactured component if they promptly send
the defective component back for remanufacturing, completing the cycle.
Collection Return Program
Metrofuser operates a Nation wide collection program. End of life parts
from around the country return to Metrofuser’s technology center in
Roselle, NJ for rehabilitation.
Last Year, Metrofuser remanufactured
58,000 mechanical and electronic parts.
Sustainable Packaging Program
Packing Material that boasts a 5 -10 times life cycle and compresses to
10 percent of their mass foot print with full support of a Nation wide
materiel Return & Recycle Program from the vendor.
R2 Compliant Processes
Metrofuser has worked hard to develop internal programs
that manage materials to assure full reclamation and downward stream disposal auditing.
E-Invoicing has reduced paper invoicing
and delivery. Our company wide office paper and cardboard recovery has
eliminated thousands of pounds of paper waste in landfills.
Last year the company reclaimed
350,000 pounds electrical and mechanical parts
22,000 pounds of aluminum metal
144,000 pounds of
29,000 pounds of laser printers
Urban Economic Enterprise
Metrofuser’s technology center is headquartered within Roselle, New
Jersey. Through commerce, the company, its vendors and customers make a
direct impact into one of the fastest recovering communities in the
Metrofuser’s recycling commitment does not end with it’s remanufacturing
program. Most of the parts that are replaced within the remanufactured
components are made from widely recycled plastics and metals such as
aluminum, gold, tin, brass, etc. Each part that can be recycled is
removed and sold to recyclers across the state and country. Metrofuser
will always be committed to exploring new recycling opportunities.
will continue to expand its program through by raising awareness and
increasing the rate of electronics recycling among its business
consumers in the United States. Optimally, the goal is to achieve a 100%
recycling rate, and to improve and continue to expand the program until
that goal is met. Last year the imaging recycling industry saved 131
million pounds of solid waste from our nation’s landfills.
