However, all the materials can be used in the recycler, only food items can’t be used.

Afterward, the recycler will turn the things into handy trash cubes. Also, it takes around 30 waste materials to produce a single trash cube. This is a great way of cleansing unnecessary items. Moreover, you will not get rid of them, but they will be turned into something valuable.
