A Recycle Station is where you convert your Space Junk into refined materials. Most recycle stations are stationary, but in some systems, they can orbit around stars. At a recycle station you can choose to recycle all of your space junk, or select the space junk you want to recycle.
When you hit the button to recycle, the station churns through all your material, producing your refined materials over the course of a few seconds. If you leave before clicking "Take Materials", your refined materials will not be lost; they go in your inventory immediately.
In some systems, a recycle station may be called a different name. These recycle stations still function exactly the same. Alternate names include:
- AF Smelting Plant
- Fanatic Outpost
- W. J. Recycles
- Ruined Scrapyard
