Property Disposition

propertyAll departmental furniture and equipment disposal should be handled through the LSA Movers.  We schedule regular trips with Property Disposition in order to consolidate items from several units to minimize trips.  We also store and redistribute furniture that we feel is in good condition, which we get back from departments.

Sending computers to Property Disposition has specific regulatory requirements.  Inform Property Disposition if your computers have gold tags for Property Control.  Hard drives must be cleared by LSA TS.  See more information on the Property Disposition Page.

Repurposed Furniture Requests

If you have a need for office furniture check with us and we may have that item available in our off-site inventory.  We do not have access to new furniture, contact your LSA facilities manager for new furniture requests.
