Turn-in to the Location or Receipt In Place Procedures-Scrap

Please, maintain close liaison with the your local Location

One of the most critical and important stages in the flow of property through the disposition system is the initial receipt of property at the Location & Receipt in Place (RIP).

Disposal Service Representative (DSR): The Disposal Service Representatives or DSRs are the face of DLA Disposition Services to the transactional customer. DSRs implement the Service Delivery Methods developed by DLA Disposition Service to better serve our customers with a consistent property mix. They assist the customer by making disposal decisions regarding property at the customer’s location, sending property directly to its ultimate location whenever possible thereby reducing the number of times it has to be handled. DSRs help reduce the overall cost of disposal to the DoD. They assist the customer in the solution of common disposal issues, and they are the customer’s advocate to the DLA Disposition Service as well as the DLA Disposition Service voice to the customer.

Receipt in Place

General: Inspection of the property is performed in place if it is more advantageous to do so because of the size, weight, or category of the property. Excess property not transferred physically to the Location shall be tagged with a status tag indicating the DTID number, Federal Condition Code and location accountability.

If the property is received in place, the tagging must include identification as property on the account of the location. Property should be consolidated physically in a designated area, but may be left in place if this action is determined locally to be justified for economic or other valid reasons. The activity having physical custody shall be responsible for care and protection of this property until it is disposed of or moved to the location.
