What type of box do I use to ship my empty cartridges?

Empty cartridges can be shipped to the recycling center using any box that you desire. For ease we recommend that you use the same box that your resin was delivered in. Please do not add the Styrofoam back in the box. The Styrofoam is not recyclable. 

Is there any special packaging or shipping restrictions that apply?

No, there is not any special packaging needed for the cartridges. Most Stratasys PolyJet resins are non-hazardous (Section 14 of our material MSDS sheets), non-DOT, and non-RCRA material. They can be shipped by any carrier without any special treatment.  One exception is the RGD515 resin which is considered hazardous and you should follow the process for shipping Dangerous Goods

What is the cost of recycling my used cartridges?

Stratasys will cover the cost of recycling the plastic in the cartridges and disposing of the left over resin. Stratasys will not cover the cost of shipping the used or expired cartridges.
