Scrapping thousands of parts?

    So, on my travels doing quests and killing techs much larger than my own i've been grabbing everything with my SCU but now have hundreds of everything.
    I'd like to scrap and liquidate it all for money to buy more desirable parts but scrappers are slow and violent. If i give a scrapper a bunch of stuff to pick up, it starts to throw it all around outside of its range and I then have to babysit the thing and it's just going to take far too long to scrap everything...

    I've been toying with the idea of a large hopper like structure that i can shove things in so the scrapper cant throw it out but things get really buggy in there so no bueno.

    How do you guys deal with this?

    TL;DR - How do you sell/scrap your unwanted blocks?

    I put a anchored cab with a large magnet on top close to the scrappers.

    I just didn't overload it and instead counted the maximum of what it could hold and then had separate smaller scraping stations to put them in.but many it would be nice if they made a silo like block to hold a crap ton of blocks like the recourses and as well many a conveyer belt for the blocks to be fed into the scrapers.that would probably help a lot with the lag when instead of everything being thrown around it's nice and neat.
