One time I used a sheet of paper and an iron. Lay the sheet of paper over it and take a hot iron and put over the paper. It will melt the plastic and it will stick to the paper. I am not sure about melted plastic, but I've removed dried wax from fabric by placing a brown paper bag (usually a lunch bag) on top of the wax (or plastic in your case) and running a medium heat iron over the bag. The wax came off, so maybe it will work for melted plastic.

Is melted plastic bad?

Melted plastic is generally non-toxic and usually a pain to remove. It is generally disposed of as trash, as it cannot really be re-used.

That melted plastic is not "bad" as it is being used for a purpose (the manufacture of goods).
