So, in the recent update. They made some huge changes in the scrap collector. Now, the scrap collector will never leave you turf. They’ve also added checks & family emblems to the recycle list. And they’ve also reduced the Mansion level limit for recycling Production Boosts & Bonds. You only need a level 16 mansion to recycle production boosts & I was able to recycle my bonds on my Mansion 23 account. So, I’m not sure what the new limit for bonds is.
All of this sounds great, right? However, there’s one thing that they did not include in their update notes. A few days ago, I made a post showing you how energy cans are the best items to get from the scrap collector (read my Scrap Collector’s Guide for more info). But unfortunately, in this update, they’re no longer available at the scrap collector’s shop. So, in this post, I’m going to show you exactly how to exchange bonds & get the energy cans from the scrap collector even if you’re not Mansion 30. I’ve done this with my Mansion 23 account & managed to get over 4000 energy cans. So, you should be able to do it too as long as they don’t patch it. You can either watch this video or continue reading:
So, the first thing you want to do is update your game to the latest version which is 1.3.683. You can check the version of the game at the top right corner of the loading screen. If you do not have the latest version, you can try restarting your game a few times & it should update.
Once you get the latest version, even if you’re a mansion 23 like me, you should be able to sell your bonds at the scrap collector for recycle coins. You do not need Mansion 30 anymore to exchange bonds. Once you’ve sold your bonds, you would want to uninstall the game & reinstall it from the playstore. At the time of making this video, the version available on the playstore is version 1.3.675 which is the version in which the energy cans were available for sale at the scrap collector’s shop.
You should download this version & make sure that it doesn’t update itself when at loading screen. If it does, then you need to uninstall & redownload the game until it doesn’t update. Once you’ve downloaded this version, you might have to wait a while for the scrap collector to arrive at your turf since it is the old version. Once he arrives, you should be able to buy energy cans from the shop using all the recycle coins that you got from selling your bonds even if you’re not Mansion 30.
So, that’s how you can get energy cans from the scrap collector.
