DLA Disposition Services manages the disposal of hazardous property for DoD activities. Hazardous materials (HM) are handled according to the same priorities as other property: reutilization within DoD, transfer to other federal agencies, donations to qualified state and nonprofit organizations, and sale to the public including recyclers. Hazardous wastes (HW) are handled through a worldwide network of HW management & disposal contracts. All services are provided on a reimbursable basis - the waste generating activity pays the unit price for the applicable contract line item numbers (CLINs) ordered for management & disposal services. 


Disposition Services accepts accountability of hazardous material as a “receipt-in-place” via a Memorandum of Agreement, in accordance with DoDM 4160.21 Vol4. Therefore, the following guidance provides information to assist the generator with preparing the documentation required for DLA Disposition Services to take accountability.

Procedures for turning in hazardous property are commodity based and complex. For detailed guidance, contact your DLA Disposition Services Environmental Protection Specialist.

Disposition Services only provide “receipt-in-place” for the designated hazardous material/waste storage facilities that have been authorized as approved pick-up points.
