Although disposing of your DLC’s surplus equipment and furniture isn’t complicated, you must follow a few key procedures. Here’s how to get started.

Obtain a deactivation sticker

If your DLC is deactivating a piece of equipment or furniture—even if it is being disposed of at the end of its useful life—you must arrange to have it tagged properly prior to removal.

Email Erin George in the VPF Property Office with the details of any equipment or furniture your DLC is disposing of to arrange for proper tagging. Erin also will update the property records to indicate the item has been removed from your DLC.

Remove or repurpose appropriately

When you’ve had an item properly tagged and deactivated by the Property Office, your DLC must have the item removed or repurposed appropriately.
