We are here at 3d games are trying to make use of junk disposed 3d prints and transforming them into materials. Some have highly recommended using plastics and other stuff while recycling, for producing better material, Any suggestions from guys?

I like Slipknot :),

How have you been? I would suggest not using all recycled material. To be honest any recycled material over 25% is gonna be a fail.  
Also be careful choosing the plastics, it should not create any extruder, spooler issues, so be gentle.
I know it's hard to throw away your old stuff and that is why you want to recycle, but if you use better filament you'll get better result. use atleast 75% virgin, for smooth printing, that's about it. Please try to keep all that in mind and Best of Luck! Thank you.
