Should I Spend Donuts On The Returning Recycled Items?

Hey there Hoppereenos!

Here were are  a few weeks in since the Monorail arrived in Springfield. Act 2 is now in full effect and with it, some New Premium Items. Like the Recycled Castle Pieces. Now I know you may be trying to decide if this is worth YOUR donuts, but don’t sweat it!  We’re here to tell you what’s worth the donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add the returning Recycled Castle items from Clash of Clones/Medieval Times to the design of YOUR Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding the returning pieces to your game!

Keep in mind that these items are Limited Time. So choose wisely and make a decision before time runs out.

Final Thought:
Premium Take:
Personally, I think either of these items are not that expensive. More the Wall then the Tower. Just too bad no Bonus. I liked them when they first were brought into the game probably because they incorporate many Decorations I use to design around the game. I am all about decorations and adding to an overall look or theme to the game. The Recycled items really can compliment the Garbage Dump and all the Recycling Centers we now have in the game. So I can see why EA chose now to bring them back. For you Decorating Premium Players, you may want to pick up a few of each of these to add to your town. Otherwise, the rest of you may want to pass on these if they’re not your style.

Freemium Take:
Same as the Premium. These items are fairly inexpensive. I would probably suggest more a splurge item on the Walls for a Freemium if you are looking to add to some decorating around the Monorail Recycling items.  So I would say this is more for a Decorating Freemium Player and mainly the lower costing Recycled Wall. There are also parts that look similar to these in the Decorations for $$ instead. Otherwise, most Freemiums may want to pass on these and save the Pink Sprinklies for another item that fits your style of Springfield.

Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would/wouldn’t do…and I can tell you as a premium player I’m passing on this one.  Just not worth it to me.   However, this IS a limited-time item.  So if you’re thinking about getting it make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games.  (and if you are thinking about getting it, the sooner the better)


Want some additional ideas of decorating with these pieces? Take a look at what some of the Readers here did with them during the Medieval Times Event.


What are your thoughts on the Recycled Tower and Walls?  Will you be spending the donuts to bring some to your Springfield (or did you already)? Where did you put them if you did? Already have some from the past? Thoughts on their return? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

  1. Sometimes I don’t understand what EA is thinking when they drop Items like these in the Store (for Donuts) during an Event …. and these Items have nothing to do with said Event (shrugs)

  2. Archer Lisa actually has a 24 hour task, Judge People from Above, that is an interaction which requires the Recycle Tower.

  3. …message for Lee my new neighboureeno …WOW! Your monorail looks awesome!!! I love what you’ve done so creative it really looks like a buzzing city station …brilliant : )

  4. Hey Bunny!! I have a quick question for you……. Do you think there will be any Halloween event this year?? It seems kinda unlikely with this event going on for awhile longer. Halloween is definitely my favorite event! Love my pumpkins!! LOL!
    Thanks ma’am!!!!

  5. If anyone wants some if these, I think I have done in inventory from post CoC cleanup that I’ll sell you for half price! 😉

  6. I had just started playing at stonecutters then the clash of clans event followed last year. So being very new I didn’t have enough donuts. But I got a few now. What I wonder, if they will add the Bart cardboard later? I remember the free stuff was just 3 corners. And thinking of finally getting a fourth for the recycled and box castle for a more symmetrical design. 🙂

  7. I picked up one wall piece because I was one short from the event of making that section how I wanted. I’ve always hated that gap in my wall, and now I could finally fix it.

  8. So many garbage decorations! We’re going to have 3 recycling plants, 1 garbage heap, Uriah’s heap, small garbage piles, recycling bins, and Little Lisa’s (if you bought it). My garbage complex is huge! But it is a nice place to dump unwanted decorations (such as Fort Adventure and the drum of horse parts).

  9. First: Bunny you seemed to be jumping in the drivers seat with a number of recent posts (where’d you find the time?), Is Alissa alright?

    As far as these objects, I didn’t care about them back in the Attack of the Clones Event, and not any more thrilled now. I wonder if more A.of.C items are to come. What else is EA going to recycle? :p

    • D’oh! As soon as I hit Post-Comment I remembered Alissa is on vacation.

    • Lol. Silly Tot… tricks or for kids. 😛

      Yes… I am now Solo on BOTH sites (been mainly in background here just filling post info and stats, occasional comment)… but Fuzzball is wrapped up in school and may or may not hop on in. Alissa is indeed on vacation (like you remembered later)… so… it’s the All Bunny show. Be worried, hide your carrots & Karats, and won’t somebody think of the Children??!! 😛

      • I think I’ll call you Bun Solo (like Han Solo), you should do your hair up like Leia (then you’ll be Bunny with extra Buns) and fly the
        Bun-lennium Falcon.

        (I might not be able to coax Alissa out of vacation but maybe I can get Wookie to take a homework break just by saying Star War-ish stuff)

        And how did you know I was eating Trix cereal? You are a Tricky, tricky rabbit Bunny 😛

  10. I actually don’t want more pieces from the Clash of Clones event. As it is, I have been pretty creative in incorporating pieces in my town design (no interest in a straight-forward castle and surrounding walls) but I never had any use for these walls. The “Castle Recycle” pieces will probably come back out of storage now to build a dump area but I definitely don’t need more. I think EA should have made these decorations that can be purchased with cash for the newer players who don’t already have them in inventory from the CoC event – otherwise I sincerely doubt that many of us who played the event will actually want/need more pieces and of Castle Recycle in particular. If they were offering, say, the brick walls or drawbridges they could probably get interest (and donuts). But I just don’t see many people clamoring to get their hands on these.

    • Definitely, like I posted, cash options are already in the game. All the pieces and parts are there… just separate and may not fit as tightly together, but still some good options of cash buy. 😉

      • I’ve got enough barbarian castle walls to create a walled city area, a la a Vauban fortress town, but I haven’t done it yet. Maybe a hundred of them….

        Ah well. Dang, and now it’s too dark to go pull weeds in my yard. Oh, well. Tomorrow.


  11. I’m going to pass. When the event is over I’ll probably put the dump + recycling centres into storage as I don’t feel they add anything to my town, I’m running out of room and I don’t need the money they’ll be producing.
