Debris are actually incredibly useful. You will need to have obtained tungsten and iron before you can make much use of it but once you have these resources, you will be able to construct a shredder which will convert debris into scrap and you can then construct a trading outpost to trade scrap for resources. 

Gathering scrap will be something you spend a lot of time on later in the game. This guide will show you how to build a really useful scrap gathering machine.
