DEFENSE REUTILIZATION AND
MARKETING OFFICE (DRMO)
Do not let your maintenance area become the
ALFA Company junk yard. Unneeded materials
and CESE that have no further use, worn-out
CESE components, batteries, tires, and so on, are
to be turned in to the Defense Reutilization and
Marketing Office (DRMO) to clean house.
Contact your supply officer and local DRMO for
proper turn-in procedures.

ment Office in Port Hueneme, California, or

Adjust your CESE inventory records,
status boards, DTO files, DTO room,

dispatch supervisor of your actions.
Disposal letters/messages are not
blanket cannibalization authority. If your
shop needs parts from a piece of CESE
going to DRMO, request authority from
COMCBPAC Equipment Office or COM-
CBLANT DET to remove such parts.
HAZARDOUS MATERIALS DISPOSAL
Hazardous materials have special turn-in
procedures. For instance, batteries must be
drained of all electrolyte before turn-in. The
electrolyte is turned in separately in a separate
container. Both items, electrolyte and batteries,
are to be palletized and marked HAZARD-
OUS before turn-in. If in doubt of any
hazardous material turn-in procedures, contact
your local DRMO office.
