How do you destroy items and structures you dont want
-

It took me some time to get the hang of the game’s controls. I ended up building loads of small printers that I now have nowhere to keep anymore. Is there a way to delete structures you no longer need in this game?

Yes, there is a way to properly destroy them to get scrap but it will require you to build a shredder. This allows you to destroy items that you no longer want. The main problem here is that you will need Iron to create a shredder and this is a resource you won’t get for a while. The best thing you can do for now is digging a pit and throw all of your junk into it until you have a proper way to dispose of it all.
