Department of Defense (DoD) Precious Metal Recovery Program (PMRP)
DoD Manual 4160.21 directs DLA to manage and oversee DoD’s PMRP. All DoD Components must participate in the PMRP to turn-in their precious metal (PM) bearing scrap into DLA Disposition Services and order any needed PM from DLA Troop Support. The PMRP offers no cost disposal for PM bearing scrap, consistent/reduced priced NSN precious metals and is fully self-funded through the program.
Precious metals include: gold, silver, platinum, palladium, rhodium, iridium, osmium and ruthenium.
PMRP can also offer its services to other Federal Civilian Agencies (FCA’s) willing to participate in the program (more information at bottom of page).
