Abstract

Highlights
• Applying ISM identifies 22 barriers to distributed recycling of 3DP waste.
• The barriers are technical, economic, social, organizational, and regulatory in nature.
• Quality demands from consumers and consumption behaviors constitute important barriers.
• Homogeneous waste streams and avoiding contamination are key to encouraging 3DP recycling in makerspaces.
• Overcoming barriers requires concerted effort by varied stakeholders: legislative bodies, companies, makerspaces, consumers.
