Our History

Richard D. Eaton is the President of Metro Fibres, Inc.  He has a long history in the recycling industry and was employed in the early 80’s by a publicly held paper company whose offices were located in San Francisco.  As General Manager for the Detroit plant, he developed brokerage for Michigan, Ohio and Indiana.  After the closing of that company over 30 years ago, Mr. Eaton founded Metro Fibres, Inc. a Michigan based commodity brokerage firm.

With the expansion into other commodities, the name changed to Metro Recycling Solutions to better reflect the essence of our current capabilities.  While paper recycling remains a significant portion of our commodity mix, we now handle many other items including metals, plastics, vinyl, books, and have expanded to such unusual items as shoes, televisions, ingredient bags, baling equipment, plant equipment and many other items associated with the recycling industry.
