With feedstock in mind, is there any research done about the reuse of plastics with regards to 3-D printed items? For example, does anyone have knowledge on whether 3-D printed items are able to be used as feedstock?

This is not exactly what you were asking for, but Ian Falconer's company makes 3DP filament from recycled fishing nets, so he might have some idea of the recyclability of products that are made with the filament.

What are some of the best ways to encourage people to simply care about the environment and thus making a shift toward sustainability? Education? Laws forcing people to recycle, etc?

Davis Christensen , I'd say that putting value into waste would be a great option. For an example if we tell a set of people to separate waste so that the Recycling is easy or Environment will be better, there won't be too many. But if I tell those people that I'll pay them cash or I'd reward them at the end of month or week, they'd happy to work for it. Everybody wants free things or rewards.


I hope this helps!!

The Healthcare Recycling Plastics Council (HRPC) might be a useful resource for exploring solutions to plastic medical waste. While they are generally geared toward hospitals, I imagine there is overlap in the types of plastic waste generated at a donation center. Their HospiCycle guide (https://www.hprc.org/hospicycle) might be a good place to start.
