- "Behold the Wasteland, where we sort the trash from the garbage and the junk. To the untrained eye, you may not notice the difference, but soon you'll have all these natural resources plentiful on Alderaan."
- ―Wat Tambor, to Bail Organa
The Wasteland was a massive junkyard that covered a large section of the planet Metalorn during the final decades of the Galactic Republic. It was set aside to hold the scrap and debris left over from manufacturing processes, which was sorted through by the Techno Union so that true scrap could be incinerated while useful items were separated and reclaimed for reuse.
