What's the best way to gather debris?

-

I am making good use of scrap but the process is slow and boring. I am going around collecting the broken turbines and junk littered around nearby but I can only carry so much. The broken platforms cant be attached to a trailer which means I have to keep leaving these behind. I don’t want to be wasting resources packaging the platforms up so I can bring them back to the base to scrap them.

To gather debris faster, you need to rethink your approach. Rather than focus on bringing the debris back to the shredder, why not bring the shredder to the debris? Check out this guide for building a scrap garbage truck. You can drive this to the debris, allowing you to scrap everything, including the platform. You will never have to worry about how much you can carry and having to constantly do round trips back to the base to clear space to gather more.
