A common misconception about 3D printing is that you can throw you waste plastic in your recycling bin. Wrong.
It is our mission to educate people on this misconception and to provide a viable solution.
3D printing generates a lot of waste. Project PLA has created the perfect solution to recycle any 3D printing waste!
Project PLA enables you to recycle any waste generated by your 3D printer starting at only $3.99 per pound.
Order a box from our shop that fits your amount of 3D printing waste.
Once you receive your box, assemble it and toss in your 3D printing waste.
Ship your box back to our facility with the included prepaid return label.
Once your box arrives at our facility we ship your waste off to the proper recycling facilities. Done! It's that simple.
We accept any waste generated by your 3D printer. This includes anything from plastic spools to failed prints to old 3D prints and models. Please do not send in 3D printer parts or printer ink cartridges.
Along with our boxes, we also offer a ship by weight option. You ship your 3D printing waste to us. We charge a flat rate of $4 per pound of 3D printing waste you send in, and you handle the shipping. If you know how to ship yourself, then you can save a few bucks by using this option.
Which one should you choose? If you know how to ship yourself and you have the time, then you might save a few bucks with You Ship. If you don't know how to ship and would like us to handle it, our Project PLA boxes are for you.
