DDO goes green and has a strong renewables program.
Leftover wood and metal gets recycled into each new level 1 warforged.
What happens to the remains of my crate-smashing orgies?
The same thing that happens to the remains of my monster-smashing orgies, which apparently get carted off to the local resurrection shrine so I can encounter them again the next time I run the quest.
From this I theorize one or both of the following might be true:
1) Crates and barrels actually have little crate and barrel soulstones, which exist on a plane I'm not equipped to see.
2) There are resurrection shrines for inanimate objects hidden away behind secret doors -- with some very high DCs!
What happens to all of the wood and metal left behind by adventurers who like to break crates and boxes?
This is where people don't understand where "Kobold Still Don't Like You" comments actually come from, they have to clean up after us - Don't you all remember Baudry's Warehouse? They rebelled against us breaking boxes.
Wood and metal from broken barrels? Who cares, the bigger question is what happens to all the bodies?!?

Only ceiling dragon knows what happens to the wood and metal

Where do you think warforged come from?
Ah - so the question that leads to the uncovering of The Twelve's scheming. I guess I can let you know a little about how deep this trogolodyte hole goes down...
In Eberron, Cartamon is secretly funded by a holding company in House Cannith to distribute the breakables in the dungeons. Cartamon has engaged the Kobold Union on a cost-per-box model to collect the refuse and return it to the secret back door into the Manufactory for recycling, and distribute the new breakables throughout the dungeons (another reason why "Kobold still hate you" is those annoying cube pets the adventurers bring through dungeons start eating up all the Kobold profit!)
Cartamon has sub-contracted another division of The Twelve, which deals with the Lord of Stone, to provide captured and charmed Evil Eyes to monitor the Kobolds for performance and honesty (most Kobolds lack the brain capacity to falsify the records, or even read, but it happens sometimes especially with the Shamans). So The Twelve get a kick-back from the holding company's costs, unbenownst to Cartamon.
This is where it gets complex. The Twelve, as the governing body, have it in their constitution to provide this service to the dungeon owners. They tax a proportion of the fees collected from the AH and A$X, which get filtered through another holding company of The Twelve within House Kundarak, the administrators of those services. Other taxes are collected directly through the Free Agents and the Coin Lords (who are secretly companies under The Twelve through other holding companies and trusts) and the various taverns and vendors located around the place who pay "rent" for their locations, as do the dungeon owners. A proportion of these taxes, rents and fees go to the foramentioned House C holding company (which is theirs) to provide the services to the dungeon owners. Therefore lining the pockets of The Twelve with the taxes that the citizens think are going to services from House C.
Now, as Elminister is actually a wannabe Twelve member, as he's a goody-two-shoes and actually not-too-bright. He wants to be "The Thirteenth" to further stroke his enormous ego. He discovered a secret path to Eberron ages ago through the DemonWeb (that's how he came to be in there when the adventurers found him...) Now, the Twelve are stringing him out with promises of joining him up; and to get him to prove his worth, they have contracted him to provide a similar service that the Kobold Union does with the boxes. This provides a further increase in profits for The Twelve, and puts the blinkers on the Eberron adventurers so they see a similar thing happening across the dungeons in Faerun. And, as someone else stated, this is the true reason why Elminster never seems to have time for anything else right now.
The Twelve have many other schemes afoot, but as a secret informer to an investigative journalist of The Chronicle who is researching this, I don't want to disclose too much more at present. I have only scratched the surface to give you an idea of how much you should really be trusting The Twelve... I'm not even going to mention what The Twelve do with the profits and who the Secret Enclave in The Twelve report to... ... ... oops ... I'll shut up now.
its clear, why do you think im calling my warforged guildmate "big iron barrel"?
Kobold workers usually pick the bits and pieces up after the adventurers are gone. They take everything to their super secret stronghold and use it to build Crateos v2.0
Splintered up barrels make great toothpicks for Giants.
im afraid your all wrong, it has nothing to do with the kobold.
you see thats what the goverment wants you to think, when really its
the ALIENS IN THERE UFOS, ufo's people ufo's ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
All that smashed wood! All that twisted metal! Where does it go? What could it be used for?
It is gathered by Kobolds to build shelving to display all of those crystals...
are spell components for the "ransack bonus" spell and are consumed to grant the players extra expirience insufficient matiral components are still consumed and the spell fizzles
Just and afterthought, but I really liked the module below when I was kid. A great way to introduce Gnomes into the game and make more content? The inside of Earthshaker can be slayer area and the quests are located inside?
Just another idea, perhaps the raid could be a battle of 12 peeps verses the Earthshaker (prevent from smashing up some part of DDO)? It can be way different from Restless Isles raid perhaps.
A giant gelatinous cube eats everything that seems to magically disappear.
I do remember that before the crafting system was introduced, the in-game vendors would take all of the junk the players sold them, and would dump it into a ravine just outside of Stormreach. Perhaps NPCs still haul broken crates and barrels out to that spot.
