The Recycler is an electric machine capable of recycling many (see blacklist below) blocks and items into useful Scrap. Each operation consuming a suitable block or item has a 1 in 8 (12.5%) chance of producing Scrap.

Each operation requires 2.25 seconds, making it the second fastest non-upgraded machine in the game.

Now, you got the tools to harvest tons of everything. But what happens if all the useless stone and dirt piles up?

Just buy yourself a sweet new Recycler.

Recyclers compress, burn, obliterate and filter EVERYTHING you feed them. LITERALLY! It even ate my shiny diamond block... that wasn't really nice... HAYO! Who cares, because with this device, I can turn piles of dirt into piles of useful stuff, including many NEW diamonds!

And best of all: It's fast and doesn't use much energy. Great, isn't it?

Note: Not every recycling process successfully returns a piece of Scrap. Standard rate is one scrap per eight items, but who cares about standards! Am I right!?

But, how do you even use the strange stuff coming out of the Recycler? Easy, just bunch some Scrap together, put a box around it and VOILA, it will suddenly turn into something useful! What exactly? Now... I don't know either, HAYO!
