Turn-In Instructions

DLA Disposition Services is a valuable source of supply for furniture and request your assistance when disposing of your "Good Usable Furniture" to one of our DLA Disposition Services Sites.

Turning in and reutilizing usable furniture saves tax dollars on purchases of new furniture, reduces the cost of abandonment and destruction, and allows DLA Disposition Services to provide quality usable furniture to other Military and Government agencies.

The following items cannot be turned-in to DLA Disposition Services, and must go directly to abandonment and destruction:

  • Any item that might be detrimental to public health
  • Mattresses
  • Box Springs
  • Other bedding
  • Upholstered furniture

Please follow these Tips for the Turn-in of the following Furniture type items:

  • FSG 7110 Office furniture- including filing cabinets, safes and post office equipment.
  • FSG 7105 Household furniture- including bedsprings, folding chairs, camp furniture, mirrors, wall mounting and furniture types, and smoking stands.
  • FSG 7125 Cabinets, lockers, bins, and shelving- including kitchen cabinets and sectionals.
  • FSG 7195 Miscellaneous furniture and fixtures -including stone, clay, and concrete furniture.

Upon notice that your unit will be receiving new furniture:
Contact the DSR at your DLA Disposition Services Site to inform them you will have furniture to turn-in. This will allow the DSR ample time to advertise and find a customer.

During the dismantling of usable furniture:
Pay careful attention not to destroy or damage the components of or lose smaller parts and hardware required for reassembly. Use plastic bags for screws, nuts and bolts and tape these to the larger pieces. Also, tape smaller parts like table legs etc. to keep the item complete.

These steps will allow DLA Disposition Services to provide good usable furniture with required parts for reassembly.
