How To Get Trash Cubes Using Recycler

While you can loot Trash Cubes from the Ocean (surface and depth), buliding a Recycler makes things faster and is a recommended way of getting them.


It’s recommended that you keep hoarding the trash materials until you are able to build a Recycler. Once you have it, you can use that trash and covert it to Trash Cubes.

To build a Raft Recycler, you will first need its blueprint which you can get from the Radio Tower. Once you have the blueprint, you can build a Recycler on your Raft to make Trash Cubes. You will need the following materials to make a Recycler after you have acquired the blueprint from the Radio Tower

After the Recycler has been made, you can put raw materials inside it and it will convert them to Trash Cubes. The following table shows the tash items you can use to get Trash Cubes, their value and how much of a material is need to get 1 Trash Cube:
