Scrap may be obtained by placing most player-made items, or any wreckage marked Debris into a Medium Shredder, Large Shredder or Extra Large Shredder. Items that are too big to be placed in a shredder, such as a Large Shuttle or any extra large platform, may be blown up with Dynamite to break them down into smaller, shreddable debris.
Each item shredded will yield different amounts of scrap, and any partially complete stack of scrap will remain in the Shredder until enough scrap has been collected to create an entire nugget of scrap. When a nugget of Scrap is complete, it will be stored on the same vehicle or platform as the shredder, assuming that there is enough storage space for it. If there is not any storage for the shredder, the Shredder will stop operating until the scrap has been removed.
Scrap may be easily obtained through the use of the Soil Centrifuge. Gathering enough Soil to turn into Clay, the player may smelt it into Ceramic and craft Drill Mod 1, which may then be shredded into Scrap. Doing this method will yield 3 Scrap for 2 canisters of Soil.
Resource Scrap Value
With the exception of EXO Chips, resources cannot be directly shredded, but their scrap value can be deducted from the item recipes that use them. The scrap amount obtained from a printable item is always equal to the sum of the scrap value of all the resources it was directly printed with. Some resources, like astronium, are not used in any printing recipes, and its scrap value is based on trading astronium for scrappable objects with the trade platform. Some resources cannot be directly used to scrap items, and as a result, have unknown scrap values.
Scrap from Items
* Value depends on how "full" the item is.
** Empty Terrain Analyzers yield no scrap.

*The Broken Platform Leg offers a varying amount of scrap that does not seem to be consistent
Scrap is the currency resource, used with the Trade Platform, to obtain other resources. The ratio of scrap to resource varies on the rarity of the resource being traded for.
Scrap could also be used to print event items for the Project CHEER Delivery LTE.
- Dynamite, Fireworks, Resources, Item Plinths, Leveling Blocks and Terrain Anchors are not shreddable.
- Before the release of the Extra Large Shredder, many of the larger broken objects were marked as Detritus. This was due to the size limitations for items accepted by the largest shredder at the time, the Large Shredder. Now, many of these objects are shreddable, and have been reclassified and marked as Debris rather than Detritus.
- Before Patch 1.9.8, Platforms were not shreddable.
