Sorting: What to do with Items No Longer Needed
Suggestions for disposing of items deemed to be no longer needed during the Sort phase:
- If equipment or tools are no longer needed, your company may be able to sell them on the used equipment market.
Return it for credit
- If raw materials or supplies are no longer needed but they are within their useable shelf life, your company may be able to return them for credit minus a restocking charge.
Give it away
- If your company cannot sell the equipment, tools, or supplies, consider donating them to a school or not-for-profit organization for tax credit.
As a last resort, throw it away
- If it is a raw material, be sure to check with your safety and environmental staff to determine the proper and safe way to dispose of it.
