Blueprints 48 Recycler
Allows disassembling items you don't need to get their components.
—Blueprint description

"Let’s start with the house. We’ve added a recycler that processes accumulated waste on your bases. We understand the temptation to loot everything that caught the eyes of experienced survivors and how hard it is not to turn your base into a dump. The very thought of throwing even completely worthless stuff, obtained in battles with zombies makes the heart ache. The recycler will prevent you from making terrible sacrifices and allow you to take unnecessary things apart to get useful resources and even rare items. The function of stripping weapons for parts is now also transferred to the recycler, since the Gunsmith workbench is temporarily unavailable due to changing its functions." (from DevBlog 04/26: Update 1.8.2.)

"The magic of a texture atlas comes into effect!

This workbench will help you to to craft something useful. As you know, to craft something needful you need to disassemble something needless first.

If you guessed we posted a recycler texture, you were completely right." (from https://twitter.com/LastDaySurvival)

Not Recyclable

Tips and Trivia

  • Introduced in Beta v.1.8.2
  • Note that when the output stack is at maximum for that item type, recycling stops--for example, when scrap metal produced reaches 50 in the slot.
  • The most efficient way to maximize high-quality, rare outputs is to first increase the relevant Recycling Skill level with items in that category with the least needed output(s). For example, Light Bulbs level up Electronics (outputting only Scrap Metal at the early, lower drop percentages) without wasting the possibility of Electronic Circuits from items like Mobile Phones or USB Drives that will have better odds at higher levels.
