The top half of the Recycling I station is divided into six identical bays which can be used alternately for material storage or processing, and allow different hulks to be processed separately. The bottom half of the station is devoted primarily to living quarters and life-support systems. The station is not well defended and has a minimal sensor suite. However, this class of station is rarely a target of pirate raids.
To say that life on an industrial station is rough would be an understatement. Compact living space, no medical bays, and industrial machinery tend to cause issues. Despite the risks and relatively small size of the station, the Recycling I is adequate for its task. The largely automated station is ready to tear down any ship or station for the raw materials they contain while the workers bring in entertainment holovids and play sabacc to pass the time.
