Metro Business Systems: Working Hard to Reduce, Reuse and RecycleWritten by Emily Pugliese
Metro Business Systems, a CarbonFree® Partner since 2008, has started an innovative new program to help keep old computer equipment in use and out of landfills. Primarily an IT hardware and services supplier, they are assisting some of the world’s largest financial institutions in recycling a substantial amount of their computer equipment. Instead of the used equipment ending up in a landfill, Metro Business Systems is working to “refresh” the old equipment so that it can be donated to local charities. With help from some local students and their own donated technical services, Metro Business Systems is wiping the confidential data off the hard drives, fix non-working components, and reinstall operating systems so that the computers are once again operational. Metro Business Systems is a supplier of computer electronics equipment and was created in 1986. They specialize in delivering a comprehensive suite of computer hardware, networking, integration, configuration and inventory management resources with unparalleled attention to customer satisfaction. Metro Business Systems is committed to environmental awareness and education. Through their partnership with us they are offsetting their corporate business and shipping emissions. They have partnered with organizations such as Carbonfund.org to better understand how they can be a more environmentally responsible company. For more information, please visit www.metropc.com.
