Looking for ways to dispose of your used 3D printer? For eco-friendly electronics recycling call WE JUNK, because WE CARE enough to properly discard your unwanted items!
Though this particular type of printers is relatively fresh, this, unfortunately, does not make it less harmful to human health and the environment. The essence of the problem, at this point, lies in the emission from fused filament, not the cartridges, as in regular printers. Depending on the characteristics of the device, it may include toxic chemicals (e.g. ultrafine particles, volatile organic compounds) and hazardous materials, which negatively affect our health. So, it is very important to keep in mind both while working with a 3D printer, and when disposing of it.
Includes: all types of 3D printers, as well as 3D pens and related items.
