  • Victoria, TX (1888PressRelease) May 18, 2019 - Electronic waste is a big hazard for the ecosystem since it remains there in the landfills for a very long time thus disturbing the ecosystem and making it unfit for living for the surrounding living organisms. Australia is the second largest country to dump electronic and computer waste into its landfills. This practice of dumping electronic waste into landfills needs to be contained with the cooperation and help of the law enforcing agencies, garbage collection agencies, public and the manufacturers of these electronic goods.

    Many of the large corporations pledge their support to such kinds of causes, many of these pledges remain on paper and are never ever taken seriously. However there are organizations like Fuji Xerox that ensure to make sure that they give back to the society whatever they are reaping from there.

    In 2017 Fuji Xerox supported the City of Adelaide on its path to become the world’s first carbon neutral city. Carbon Neutral Adelaide is a community effort which aims to reduce the carbon emissions and provide leadership and encourages others to address climate change. The role of Fuji Xerox was clearly outlined to identify local opportunities to improve its footprint and contribute to a sustainable, prosperous low carbon economy.

    In its latest move Fuji Xerox has gone one step ahead in making its pledge of creating and sustaining a clean and green Australia by opening an eco-manufacturing Centre in Sydney. In this particular Centre parts are recycled and re-manufactured up to three times. The building where the Centre is located itself is an example and epitome of Australia’s journey towards creating a greener ecosystem for the current and coming generation. The Centre of excellence is located at Sydney’s Rosehill. And is housed in a heritage listed building with recycled rubber flooring, smart power and air con and recycled furniture earning it a five star gold rating with the Green Building Council Australia.

    Fuji Xerox has been operating out of the Austrlaian market for many years with a host of products - Fuji xerox C5580, Fuji Xerox C2270, Fuji Xerox C450, Fuji xerox CM405df, Fuji Xerox CM305df, Fuji xerox 700, Fuji xerox C2271, Fuji xerox 7760, Fuji xerox 7750, Fuji xerox 7800, Fuji xerox C5005, Fuji xerox 5065, Fuji Xerox C3290, Fuji Xerox Docuprint C2200, Fuji xerox CT350851, Fuji xerox CT350868, Fuji xerox CT350361 via its various dealers like Inkmasters. With so many products in the market and an extensive dealer network all across Australia Fuji Xerox has taken up the responsibility of making this country cleaner and greener with a much less pressure on the landfills.

    Officials at Fuji Xerox believe that corporations have a big role to play in the recycling and remanufacturing of their products to ease out the dumping of e-waste which creates an environmental hazard. Bede Wolf, Operations Manager remarked that “Recycling is important but re-manufacturing is the bees knees of sustainability in product stewardship.”

    The used parts are collected by Fuji Xerox Australia and brought back to the site at Rosehill. A staff of almost 30 people works on the used parts on remanufacturing it. Approximately 20 percent of the spare parts brought back are recycled. The lab at Rosehill is a shared lab with an emphasis on training and support along with recycling and remanufacturing.

    In tandem with the pledge to conserve the environment and a promise to lead Australia towards a greener Australia this facility is going to work as a prototype for remanufacturing from Fuji Xerox end.
