Five years ago I started my first company, 3R Recycling. The foundation of 3R Recycling is the belief that resource sustainability is key to a better future and I have worked hard to promote that.

RePLAy 3D is built on that same belief. Having spoken with many commercial 3D printers, 3D printer manufacturers, and home users that feel there aren't any responsible solutions for disposing of their printing scraps and old prints. I have started RePLAy 3D to be that solution.

RePLAy 3D's recycling program is the first and only of it's kind in the industry. Our 100% recycled PLA filament is the first and only offered in North America and our 100% recycled ABS is sourced from a US-based surgical device manufacturer.

The goal at RePLAy 3D is to make recycling as simple and rewarding for you as possible. 


Meet the Founder


My name is Joe and I am a recycler. I was born and raised in Atlanta, GA and have been living in Boston, MA since 2008. 

I graduated from Georgia State University with a degree in finance. Finding a job in finance in the midst of the Great Recession was tough so I decided to make my own job. I started 3R Recycling with little knowledge of running a business or the plastics recycling industry. 3R has provided me with a wealth of knowledge and experience while also helping the environment. 

I am an avid sports fan and love walks around Boston with my family and our dog Jeff. In my free time I enjoy reading, woodworking, and tinkering with my 3D printer.
