Ah, glad to see you tip out your "box of learning" on to the table in this video. It looks much less populated than my boxes of learning!

lol, I've got a decent pile saved up as well. I wonder if regular recycle bin collection can take 3D prints if you pack them in a box and label it with the type of plastic. It would be nice if a retail chain that sells 3D printer goodies like Microcenter would offer filament reprocessing for a similar price per kg as buying new. Would be a good way to share a single grinder/extruder setup among the city, and attract more shoppers too.

I had been keeping all of my errors. Now I do a through-out every month. Yes it is a pity they can not be recycled locally.
