About Ed Thorn

Ed's a huge fan of rushing B in CS:GO and grinding it out in Destiny 2. He will not rest until a new Wario Land is announced.

Our Fallout 76 Plastic guide contains a list of all the locations where you can find Plastic, and all the junk items that grant Plastic when scrapped.

You’ll need plastic for every type of crafting in Fallout 76, and it’s most commonly used for building furniture or modifying armor and energy weapons. Despite being a crafting staple, it can be difficult resource to track down, especially if you’re not exactly sure what items grant it.

To help you out, we’ve put together a guide below which’ll take you through where plastic can be found and what items grant it when scrapped. You’ll be surprised just how many items contain plastic (just like real life eh?).

Where to find Plastic

We’ve found large towns, schools and building complexes contain loads of junk items which can be broken down into plastic. Plastic deposits aren’t a thing, so it’s largely a case of visiting certain locations and rummaging through all the junk that’s lying about.

We’d highly recommend using the “Tag for Search” feature when seeking out plastic. If you tag plastic at a workbench, a magnifying glass icon will pop up next to it. This means that whenever you encounter a junk item which contains plastic out in the game world, you’ll be alerted to it straight away.

Make sure you watch this video by Player Guides as it details a great location for farming plastic:

Junk items which contain Plastic

Here’s a long list of all the items that contain plastic in Fallout 76. Prepare yourselves, it’s a lengthy scroll.

Just a quick note to say that we’ve only included the amount of plastic that each item grants when scrapped. In many cases you’ll also receive other materials too, which is a nice bonus!
