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

Prairie facilities free of charge.**

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.

size and scope of our Lifeworks team in Eden Prairie."
