The program provides a code-compliant and free-of-charge system for disposing of waste FDM canisters and PolyJet cartridges.* Recycling is carried out at Stratasys’ Eden Prairie, Minnesota facilities, in collaboration with Lifeworks, a nonprofit organization serving people with disabilities.

According to Gilad Gans, President of Stratasys North America: “Being able to recycle both FDM canisters and PolyJet cartridges brings some significant business benefits to our customers. It helps them eliminate waste disposal shipping costs, reduces logistical worries, saves space and helps our customers better adhere to local compliance.” To learn more about Stratasys’ new recycling program and to see the Lifeworks team in action, watch the video here.

From the Stratasys website customers can print out their own pre-paid UPS shipping label. UPS then picks up and ships the recyclables straight to the Stratasys Eden Prairie facilities free of charge.**

“The new recycling program is one way we’re making 3D printing and additive manufacturing more convenient and accessible for everyone,” said Zehavit Reisin, Vice President for Stratasys Materials Business Unit. “We also believe that it gives our customers the satisfaction of knowing they’re doing their bit to help the environment while at the same time supporting jobs for people with disabilities in our community. The more our customers recycle, the more we’ll be able to expand the size and scope of our Lifeworks team in Eden Prairie.”

*The Recycling Program does not include disposal or shipping of dangerous goods.

**The Recycling Program is currently available in North America only.
